12,476,417; 1907, 12,910,200; and 1906, 12,323,270.

dation and settlements were made.

pay the state of North Ca:Folina the difference between the aggregate freights 
charged or received and those fixed by said commission, and to make a report 
of freights charged or received every three months during the pendency of 
'such appeal; and whenever such difference in freights equals or exceeds the 
penalty of such undertaking the commission may require another to be exe- 
cuted and filed with them. From the time the undertaking first mentioned is 
filed the judgment appealed from shall be vacated; but a failure for ten days 
to file any additional undertaking required by the commission shall eo instanti 
revive such judgment. Out of the funds paid into the state treasury under 
this section there shall be refunded to shippers the overpaid freight ascertained 
by the final determination of the appeal on the recommendation of the com-

1081. Peremptory mandamus to enforce order, when no appeal. If no 
appeal is taken from an order or judgment of the corporation commission 
within the time prescribed by the law, but the corporation affected thereby fails 
to put said order in operation, the corporation commission may apply to the 
judge riding the superior court district which embraces Wake county, or to 
the resident judge of said district at chambers, upon ten days' notice, for a 
peremptory mandamus upon said corporation for the putting in force of said 
judgment or order; and if said judge shall find that the order of said commis- 
sion was valid and within the scope of its powders, he shall issue such peremptory 
mandamus. An appeal shall lie to the supreme court in behalf of the corpora- 
tion commission, or the defendant corporation, from the refusal or the granting 
of such peremptory mandamus. 1905, c. 107.

file with the corporation commission a sworn statement every three months 
during the pending of the appeal of the items of freight, with names of shippers, 
carried over such company's road within the pending ninety days, showing the 
freights charged and those fixed by the corporation commission; and in the 
event the determination of the corporation commission appealed from is affirmed

treasury of North Carolina the aggregate difference between the freights collected 
and those fixed by the final determination of the matter appealed. 1899, c. 
164, s. 7. / 

1083. Eestraining order vacated, Vv^hen. Whenever the aggregate differ- 
ence between the freights collected and those fixed by the corporation commis- 
sion shall equal or exceed the sum specified in the undertaking, the corporation 
commission shall notify the appellant "that another justified undertaking in 
like sum and with the same conditions as the original undertaking is required 
to be executed and filed with the corporation commission. A failure to file 
with the corporation commission the sworn statement provided for in the 
preceding section, or any one of them when more than one is required or asked 
for, or a failure to give an additional undertaking when required within fifteen 
days from notice so to do, shall vacate and render null and void any restraining 
order, injunction or other process to staj^ the enforcement of any determination 
of the corporation commission as to schedules of rates. 1899, c. 164, s. 7. 

1084. Suits on injunction bond. When any of the conditions of such 
undertaking are broken it may be sued on and enforced in the name of the 
state of North Carolina on the relation of the corporation commission by sum- 
mons returnable to the superior court of any county in the state at a regular 
term thereof. The solicitor of the district shall prosecute the action in his 
court in behalf of the state, and shall be allowed such fees, to be taxed in the 
bill of costs, as the court may order; and the attorney-general shall prosecute 
on appeal to the supreme court on behalf of the state and shall be allowed 
such fees, to be taxed in the bill of costs, as the court shall allow. 1899, c. 
164, s. 7.

sworn statements herein required to be made are not made the whole penalty 
of the undertaking shall be enforced and paid into the state treasury. The 
sums paid into the treasury under the provisions of this section shall be used 
to reimburse the shippers of freight for the excess of freights paid over what 
should have been paid, such reimbursements to be made on recommendation of 
the corporation commission: Provided, application therefor is made within 
one year after the determination of the appeal in which the undertaking was 
given. The recovery in each undertaking shall be applied to such excess of 
freights as has been paid during the period covered by such undertaking. 
1899, c. 164, s. 7.

tion before the corporation commission, setting forth all the facts, and asking 
relief against such ordinance, and that the corporation commission prescribe 
the rate of speed at which trains may run through said municipality. Upon 
the filing of the petition a copy thereof shall be mailed, in a registered letter, 
to the mayor or chief officer of "the town or municipality, together with a notice

carrier within the terms of this chapter to charge and receive as great com- 
pensation for a shorter as for a longer distance: Provided, however, that 
upon application to the commission, such common carrier may in special cases 
be authorized to charge less for longer than for shorter distances for the 
transportation of passengers or property; and the commission may from time 
to time prescribe the extent to which such designated common carrier may be 
relieved from the operation of this section: Provided, that nothing in this

shall have precedence over all other actions. The board of commissioners of the 
county in which such banks, banking associations or savings institutions are 
located shall assess against the value of shares of residents in that county the 
tax imposed for school and county purposes, which shall be paid to the sheriff 
of that county, and shall assess against the value of shares held by nonresidents 
of this state in such bank, banking association or savings institution located in 
that county the said tax imposed for school, county and municipal purposes; and

of said nonresident stockholders. The value of such shares shall be determined 
as is hereinafter in this section provided. Every bank, banking association or 
savings institution (whether state or national) shall list its real estate in the 
county, city or town in which such real estate is located, for the purposes of 
state, county and municipal taxation. Every such bank, banking association or 
savings institution shall, during the month of June, list annually with the corpo-

that day, from which market or actual value shall be deducted the assessed value 
of the real and personal property which such bank, banking association or sav- 
ings institution shall have listed for taxation in the county or counties wherein 
such real and personal estate .is located. The actual value of such shares, where 
such shares have no market value, shall be ascertained by adding together the 
capital stock, surplus and undivided profits and deducting therefrom the amount 
of real and personal property owned by said institution on which it pays tax 
and dividing the next amount by the number of shares in said institution. In- 
solvent debts due said institution may be deducted from the items of undivided 
profits or surplus, if itemized and sworn to, and forwarded to the corporation 
commission by the cashier of such institution. If the corporation commission 
sliall have reason to believe that the market or actual value as given in is not 
its true value, it shall ascertain such true value by such examination and investi-

amount as it ascertains the true value to be, which action on the part of the 
corporation commission ' may be reviewed by the superior court by an action 
brought against the corporation commission in its official capacity by the party 
aggrieved. But no action shall lie until all taxes admitted by such aggrieved 
party to be due shall have been paid or tendered. In listing the shares for state 
taxation, such bank, banking association or savings institution shall file with 
the corporation commission of the state a statement showing the name and 
residence of each shareholder, the number of shares held by each and the taxable 
value of such shares as fixed by the provisions of this act, which statement shall 
be in writing and subscribed and sworn to by the president, cashier or some other 
officer of the bank. For the purpose of aiding the county commissioners and 
other municipal officers in enforcing the law as to the listing of bank shares by 
the individual shareholders for the purpose of county, school and municipal 
taxation, it shall be the duty of every bank, banking association or savings insti- 
tution (whether state or national) to furnish to the board of county commis- 
sioners of each county wherein any of its shareholders reside a statement show- 
ing the names of all its shareholders resident in such county, with the number 
of shares owned by each, and the taxable value of such shares, ascertained from 
the statement hereinbefore required to be made by such bank, banking associa- 
tion or savings institution to the corporation commission of the state. It shall 
also be the duty of the corporation commission to certify to the board of county 
commissioners of each county wherein any of said shareholders reside a state- 
ment showing the names of all the shareholders resident in such county, with 
the number of shares owned by each, and the value of such shares as ascertained 
by the statement hereinbefore required to be made by such bank, banking asso- 
ciation or savings institution to the corporation commission of the state; and 
it shall thereupon be the duty of the chairman and clerk of the said board of 
county commissioners to list said shares of stock, with the assessed value thereon, 
for the purposes of county, school or municipal taxation; and the tax lister for 
the city or town shall compute the municipal taxes thereon: Provided, that no 
city or town shall assess any bank stock at a valuation different from that 
affixed by the corporation commission. The residents of this state who are 
shareholders in any bank, banking association or savings institution (whether 
state or national) shall list their respective shares in the county, city or town, 
precinct or village where they reside, for the purposes of county, school or 
municipal taxation. The shares of nonresidents of this state who are share- 
holders in any bank, banking association or savings institution (whether state 
or national) located in this state shall be listed in the county, city, town, pre- 
cinct or village in which such bank, banking association or savings institution 
is located, for the purposes of county, school and municipal taxation. All shares, 
whether owned by residents or nonresidents, shall be listed at the time pre- 
scribed for listing taxes. The county commissioners, list takers and other 
county and municipal officers shall have the same power to enforce the listing 
of shares of stock in any such bank, banking association or savings institution, 
whether held by residents or nonresidents, as they have for enforcing the listing 
of other personal property. The taxation of shares of any such bank, banking 
association or savings institution shall not be at a greater rate than is assessed 
upon other moneyed capital in the hands of individual citizens of this state, 
whether such taxation is for state, county, school or municipal purposes.

additional statements to be made to them, and may compel the attendance of 
witnesses in case they shall deem it necessary to enable them to ascertain the 
true cash value of such property. 
Sec. 48. Manner of assessment. 

Said corporation commission shall first ascertain the true cash value of the 
entire property owned by the said association, company, copartnership or cor- 
poration from said statements or otlierwise for that purpose, taking the aggre- 
gate value of all the shares of capital stock, in case shares have a market value, 
and in case they have none, taking the actual value thereof or of the capital of 
said association, company, copartnership or corporation in whatever manner the 
same is divided, in case no shares of capital stock have been issued: Provided, 



ACTS RELATING TO THE COMMISSION. 45 

however, that in case the whole or any portion of the property of such associa- 
tion, company, copartnership or corporation shall be encumbered by a mortgage 
or mortgages, such board shall ascertain the true cash value of such property by 
adding to the market value of the aggregate shares of stock or to the value of 
the capital. In case there should be no such shares, the aggregate amounts of 
such mortgage or mortgages, and the result shall be deemed and treated as the 
true cash value of the property of such association, company, copartnership or 
corporation. Such board of corporation commissioners shall, for the purpose of 
ascertaining the true cash value of the property within the state of North 
Carolina, next ascertain from such statements or otherv/ise the assessed value 
for taxation, in the localities where the same is situated, of the several pieces 
of real estate situated within the state of North Carolina and not specifically 
used in the general business of such associations, companies, copartnerships or 
corporations, which said assessed value for taxation shall be by said board de- 
ducted from the gross value of the property as above ascertained. Said state 
board of corporation commissioners shall next ascertain and assess the true cash 
value of the property of the associations, companies,- copartnerships or corpora- 
tions within the state of North Carolina by taking as a guide, as far as practica- 
ble, the proportion of the whole aggregate value of said associations, companies, 
copartnerships or corporations as above ascertained, after deducting the as- 
sessed value of such real estate without the state which the length of lines of 
said associations, companies, copartnerships or corporations, in the case of tele- 
graph and telephone companies within the state of North Carolina, bears to the 
total length thereof, and in the case of express companies and sleeping-car com- 
panies the proportion shall be the proportion of the whole aggregate value, after 
such deduction, which the length of the lines or routes within the state of North 
Carolina bears to the whole length of lines or routes of such associations, com- 
panies, copartnerships or corporations, and such amount so ascertained shall be 
deemed and held as the entire value of the property of said associations, com- 
panies, copartnerships or corporations within the state of North Carolina. The 
corporation commission shall also assess the value for taxation of all real estate, 
structures, machinery and appliances of telegraph and telephone companies within 
the state subject to local taxation, and this assessment, together with the fran- 
chise value, shall be certified by the commission to the counties and municipali- 
ties where located on basis of wire mileage in such county or town in which such 
property is situated. From the entire value of the property within the state 
so ascertained there shall be deducted by the commissioners the assessed value 
for taxation of all real estate, structures, machinery and appliances within the 
state and subject to local taxation in the counties as hereinbefore described in 
sections forty, forty-one, forty-two, forty-three, forty-four and forty-five of this 
act, and the residue of such value so ascertained, after" deducting therefrom the 
assessed value of such local properties, shall be by said board assessed to said 
association. 
Sec. 49. Value per mile. 

Said corporation commission shall thereupon ascertain the value per mile of 
the property within the state by dividing the total value as above ascertained, 
after deducting the specific properties locally assessed within the state by the 
number of miles within the state, and the result shall be deemed and held as 
value per mile of the property of such association, company, copartnership or 
corporation within the state of North Carolina. 



46 'N. C. COEPOEATIOlSr COMMISSION. 

Sec. 50. Total value for each county. 

Said, corporation commission shall thereupon, for' the purpose of determining 
what amount shall be assessed hj it to said association, company, copartnership 
or corporation in each county in the state, through, across and into or over 
which the line of said association, company, copartnership or corporation extends, 
multiply the value per mile, as above ascertained, by the number of miles in 
each such counties as reported in said statements or as otherwise ascertained, 
and the result thereof shall be by the clerk of said board certified to the chairman 
of the board of county commissioners, respectively, of the several counties 
through, into, over or across which the lines or routes of said association, com- 
pany, copartnership or corporation extends. All taxes due the state from any 
corporation taxed under the preceding sections, except the tax paid for school 
purposes, shall be paid by the treasurer of each companj- direct to the state 
treasurer. 

Sec. 51. Companies failing to pay tax. 

In case any such association, company, copartnership or corporation as named 
in this act shall fail or refuse to pay any taxes assessed against it in any county 
in this state, in addition to other remedies provided by law for the collection of 
taxes, an action may be prosecuted in the name of the state of North Carolina 
by the solicitors of the different judicial districts of the state on the relation of 
the county commissioners of the different counties of this state, and the judg- 
ment in the said action shall include a penalty of fifty per cent of the amount 
of taxes as assessed and unpaid, together with reasonable attorneys' fees for the 
reduction of such action, which action may be prosecuted in any county into, 
through, over or across which the line or routes of any association, company, 
copartnership or corporation shall extend, or in any county where such associa- 
tion, company, copartnership or corporation shall have an office or agent for the 
transaction of business. In case such association, company, copartnership or 
corporation shall have refused to pay the whole of the taxes assessed against the 
same by the corporation commission, or in case pucli association, company, co- 
partnership or corporation shall have refused to pay the taxes or any portion 
thereof assessed to it in any particular county or counties, such action may 
include the whole or any portion of the taxes so unpaid in any county or 
counties; but the attorney-general may, at his option, unite in one action the 
entire amount of the taxes due, or may bring separate actions to each separate 
county or adjoining counties, as he may prefer. All collections of taxes for or 
on account of any particular county made in any such suit or suits shall be by 
said board accounted for as a credit to the respective counties for or on account 
of which such collections were made by the said board at tlie next ensuing settle- 
ment with such county, but the penalty so collected shall be credited to the 
general fund of the state; and upon such settlement being made, the treasurers 
of the several counties shall at their next settlements enter credits upon the 
proper duplicates in their offices, and at the next settlement with such county 
report the amount so received by him in his settlement with the state, and proper, 
entries shall be made with reference thereto: Provided, that in any such action 
the amount of assessment fixed by said corporation commission and apportioned 
to such count}^ shall not be controverted.

listed for purposes of taxation by the principal officers or agents of such com- 
panies with the list takers of the county where the real and personal property 
may be situated, in the manner provided by law for the listing and valuation of 
real and personal property. A list of such property shall be filed by such com- 
pany with the corporation commission. It shall be the duty of the register of 
deeds, if requested so to do by the corporation commission, to certify and send

(a) At such dates as real estate is required to be assessed for taxation, the 
said commission shall first determine the value of the tangible property of each 
division or branch of such railroad, of rolling stock and all other physical or 
tangible property. This value shall be determined by a due consideration of the 
actual cost of replacing the property, with a just allowance for depreciation on 
rolling stock, and also of other conditions, to be considered as in the case of 
private property. 

(5) They shall then assess the value of the franchise, which shall be de- 
termined by due consideration of the gross earnings as compared with the operat- 
ing expenses, and particularly by consideration of the, value placed upon the 
whole property by the public (the value of the physical property being deducted), 
as evidenced by the market value of all capital stock, certificates of indebtedness, 
bonds or any other securities, the value of which is based upon the earning 
capacity of the property. 

(c) The aggregate value of the physical or tangible property and the franchise 
as thus determined shall be the true value of the property for the purpose of an 
ad valorem taxation, and shall be apportioned in the same proportion that the 
length of such road in each county bears to the entire length of such division 
or branch thereof; and the corporation commission shall certify, on or before the 
fifteenth day of August, to the chairman of the county commissioners and the 
mayor of each city or incorporated town the amount apportioned to his county, 
city or town; and the said commission shall make and forward a like certificate 
to the auditor of the state. All taxes due the state from any railroad company, 
except the tax imposed for school purposes, shall be paid by the treasurer of each 
company directly to the state treasurer within thirty days after the first day 
of July of each year; and upon failure to pay the state treasurer as aforesaid, 
he shall institute an action to enforce the same in the county of Wake or any 
other county in which such railroad is located, adding thereto twenty-five per

the owner or possessor of any property in this state other than which it derives 
from the lessor or company whose property is operated, it shall be assessed in 
respect to such property in like manner as any domestic railroad company. 
Sec. 58. Railroads. 

The corporation commission shall have power to summon and examine wit- 
nesses and require that books and papers shall be presented to them for the pur- 
pose of obtaining such information as may be necessary to aid in determining 
the valuation of any railroad company. Any president, secretary, receiver or 
accounting officer, servant or agent of any railroad or steamboat company hav- 
ing any portion of its property or roadway in this state who shall refuse to 
attend before the said commission when required to do so, or refuse to submit to 
the inspection of said commissioners any books or papers of such railroad com- 
pany in his possession, custody or control, or shall refuse to answer such ques- 
tions as may be put to him by said commission, or order, touching the business 
or property, moneys and credits, and the value thereof, of said railroad company,

sion, and may be confined, by order of said commission, in the jail of the proper 
county until he shall comply with such order and pay the cost of his imprison- 
ment.

personal liability on account of the nonpayment of such debt or liability of the 
corporation, but the transferee of any stock so transferred previous to any de- 
fault shall be liable for any such debt or liability of the corporation to the 
extent of such stock, in the same manner as if he had been the owner at the 
time the corporation contracted such debt or liability. 1903, c. 275, s. 14.

quent stockholder twenty days* notice, personally or by mail, at his latest known 
address. If no party can be found who will pay for such stock the amount due 
thereon to the bank, with any additional indebtedness of such stockholder to the

dition; and in case it is found by the examiner, upon such examination, that 
such bank is insolvent or is conducting its business in an unsafe and unauthor- 
ized manner, or is jeopardizing the interests of its depositors, then such exam- 
iner, when authorized by the corporation commission, shall have full power

sioners in their judgment may grant such bank, corporation or individual sixty

iner, by examination or otherwise, that any officer, agent, employee, director, 
stockholder or owner of a bank or banking institution has been guilty of a viola- 
tion of the criminal laws of the state relating to banks and banking institutions, 
it shall be his duty to hold and detain such person until a warrant can be pro- 
cured for his arrest; and for such purpose such examiner shall have and possess 
all the powers of a peace officer of such county, and may arrest without warrant 
for past offenses. Upon report of his action to the corporation commission, it 
may direct the release of the person so held, or, if in its judgment such person 
should be prosecuted, the commission shall cause the solicitor of the judicial dis- 
trict in which such detention is had to be promptly notified, and the action 
against such person shall be continued a reasonable time to enable such solicitor

bank; or if any such examiner shall receive or accept any bribe or gratuity, 
given for the purpose of inducing him not to file any report of an examination 
of any bank made by him, or shall neglect to make an examination of any bank

RULES OF PRACTICE 



CASES AND PROCEEDINGS 

BEFORE THE COURT OF THE NORTH CAROLINA 
CORPORATION COMMISSION. 



Public Sessions. 

1. The general sessions of the court for the hearing of contested cases will be 
held at its office in the agricultural building, Raleigh, N. C, on the first Wednes- 
day of each month at 11 o'clock A. M. When special sessions are held at other 
places such regulations as may be necessary will be made by the court,. 

Parties. 

2. Where a complaint concerns anything done or omitted to be done by only 
a single carrier no other need be made a party, but if it relates to joint tariffs, 
or matters in which two or more carriers doing business under a common con- 
trol, management or arrangement for a continuous carriage or shipment are 
interested, all the carriers constituting such line must be made parties. A com- 
plaint may embrace several carriers, or lines of carriers, operated separately, in 
the same proceeding, when the subject-matter of the complaint involves substan- 
tially the same alleged violation of the law by the several carriers or lines. 
Persons or carriers not parties may apply, in any pending case or proceeding, 
for leave to intervene and to be heard upon the questions involved. 

GENERAL RULES. 
Proceedings Before the Court. 

3. All petitions and complaints made before the court for redress of alleged 
grievances must plainly and distinctly set forth the grounds of complaint, the 
items being numbered and objections all set forth in writing. In like manner 
all defenses must be distinctly set forth in writing, and the items numbered as 
above stated. These specifications, whether of complaint or defense, may be 
accompanied, if the parties desire, by an explanation or argument, or by any 
suggestion as to the proper remedy or policy, and may be verified by the affidavit 
of the party complaining or petitioning, taken before any person authorized to 
administer oaths in North Carolina, and when the complaint or petition is veri- 
fied, then the answer thereto shall be verified, and the verification shall conform 
to the rules prescribed in The Code of North Carolina for the verification of 
pleadings. The parties may also be heard in person or by attorney, or by written 
argument, upon such written statement being first filed. 

4. If a carrier complained against shall deem the complaint insufficient to 
show a breach of legal duty, it may, instead of filing an answer, serve on the 
complainant notice for a hearing of the case on the complaint; and in case of the 
service of such notice, the facts stated in the complaint will be taken as ad- 
mitted. A copy of the notice must at the same time be filed with the court. The 
filing of an answer will not be deemed an admission of the sufficiency of the 
complaint, but a motion to dismiss for insufficiency may be made at the hearing. 



EULES OF PRACTICE. 61 

Service of Papers. 

5. Copies of notices or other papers must be served upon the opposite parties 
to the proceeding, personally or by mail, and when any party shall have appeared 
by attorney, the service upon the attorney shall be deemed proper service upon 
the party. If party so notified shall fail to answer within ten days after such 
notice, then the court in its discretion may grant the relief demanded. 

Amendments. 

6. Upon application by any petitioner or party, amendments may be allowed 
by the court, in its discretion, to any petition, answer, or other pleading in any 
proceeding before the commission. 

Adjournment and Extension of Time. 

7. Adjournment and extension of time may be granted upon the application of 
parties in the discretion of the court. 

Stipulations. 

8. Parties to cases and proceedings before the court may, by stipulation, duly 
signed by them and filed with the secretary, agree upon the facts, or any portion 
of the facts, they deem to be involved in the controversy, which agreed statement 
shall be regarded and used as evidence. It is desirable that the facts be thus 
agreed upon whenever practicable. 

Hearings. 

9. Upon issue being joined by the service of answer, the court will assign a 
time and place for hearing the same, which will be at its office in Raleigh, N. C, 
at its regular session, unless otherwise ordered. Witnesses will be examined 
orally before the court, unless testimony be taken or facts agreed upon as other- 
wise provided in these rules. The petitioner or complainant must in all cases 
prove the existence of the facts alleged to constitute a violation of the act, unless 
the carrier complained of shall admit the same, or shall fail to answer the com- 
plaint. Facts alleged in the answer must also be proved by the carrier, unless 
admitted by the petitioner. In cases of failure to answer, the court will take 
such proof of the charge as may be deemed reasonable and proper, and make 
such order thereon as the circumstances of the case appear to require. 

Witnesses and Depositions. 

10. Subpoenas requiring the attendance of witnesses will be issued by any mem- 
ber of the court in all cases and proceedings before it, and witnesses will be 
required to obey the subpoenas served upon them requiring their attendance or 
the production of any books, papers, tariff^s, contracts, agreements or documents 
relating to any matter under investigation or pending before the court. When 
a subpcena is desired for the production of books, papers or other documentary 
evidence, special application must be made to the court therefor, specifying the 
documentary evidence desired. When a cause is at issue on petition and answer, 
each party may proceed at once to take depositions of witnesses in the manner 
provided by section 1357 of The Code of North Carolina, and transmit them to 
the secretary of the commission without making any application to or obtaining 
any authority from the court for that purpose.

Proposed Findings of Fact. 

11. Upon the final submission of a case to the court either party may submit 
proposed findings of fact for the consideration of the court, which findings must 
embrace only the material facts of the case supposed to be established by the 
testimony. 

Reports. 

12. Each railroad company doing business within the state of North Carolina 
shall file in the office of the court quarterly reports showing in detail statement 
of freight and passenger earnings, operating expenses, etc., on such forms as may 
be prescribed from time to time by the court. 

RULES GOVERNING TRANSPORTATION OF PASSENGERS. 

1. That all common carriers subject to the supervision of the corporation com- 
mission shall provide such means or appliances as may be necessary to secure 
the careful handling of and to prevent injury to any parcel of baggage to which 
a check may be affixed, as provided by law. That at all minor stations, where 
no proper appliances are supplied and no regular depot hand is employed, the 
train hands shall be required to assist the baggage-master, and lift with care all 
baggage from the car doors. 

2. All railroad companies, in addition to the usual bell cord, shall place a 
safety cord in each coach of the regular passenger trains, running through the 
entire length of the same. 

3. It shall be the duty of the Pullman Car Company, at all stations, on the 
stopping of trains, to have the doors of their cars open for the reception of 
passengers and require the porter to have a step ready for the convenience of 
passengers desiring to enter. 

4. It shall be the duty of every railway company operating a railroad in this 
state to place a bulletin board in a conspicuous place at each of its ticket offices, 
upon which shall be bulletined the time that each train, upon which passengers 
are hauled, is due to arrive and depart under its published schedule. It shall 
also be the duty of each railway company, at each telegraph station upon its 
line, thirty (30) minutes before the time that its said trains are due to arrive 
at such station, to bulletin the fact upon said board as to whether said train is 
on time or not, and if behind schedule time, to state, as nearly as can be approx- 
imated, the time it is behind; and, whenever there is any indefinite delay of any 
passenger train, it shall be the duty of the railroad company to cause to be bul- 
letined at all of such stations the cause of such delay, and the probable contin- 
uation thereof, and the passengers aboard such train shall also be informed of the 
probable delay; it shall also be the duty of the railroad company to cause its 
bulletins of all delayed trains to be corrected from time to time as the entries 
thereon can be ascertained by them to be incorrect. (Circular No. 79.) 

RULES GOVERNING THE TRANSPORTATION OF FREIGHT. 
1. All connecting railroads, which are under the management and control, by 
lease, ownership or otherwise, of one and the same company, shall, for purposes 
of transportation, in applying this tariff^, be considered as constituting but one 
and the same road, and the rates shall be computed as upon parts of one and 
the same road, unless otherwise specified. 



RULES OF PRACTICE. 63 

Distances. 

2. Since a separate rate cannot be conveniently given for every possible dis- 
tance, the law authorizes the commission "to ascertain what shall be the limits 
of longer and shorter distances." Five (5) miles has, accordingly, been fixed as 
the limit for a change of freight rates for all distances less than one hundred 
miles; and ten (10) miles for all distances over one hundred miles. The com- 
missioners reserve the right, however, to correct the charge in extreme cases 
which work hardship, although the same may not violate the letter of our rules. 

3. For all distances over five (5) miles and under one hundred (100) miles, 
the following rule will apply: When the mileage does not end in or 5 the 
nearest mileage so ending shall govern the rate. Illustration: For a distance of 
twenty-seven miles charge for twenty-five miles, for a distance of twenty-eight 
miles charge for thirty miles. 

4. When freight is transported any distance greater than one hundred miles, 
if the mileage does not end in 0, then next ten (10) miles group above shall 
govern the rate. Illustration: For one hundred and twenty-one miles charge for 
one hundred and thirty. 

5. For distance under twenty miles or over two hundred and fifty miles, a re- 
duction of rates may be made without making a change at all stations short of 
two hundred and fifty miles: Provided, however, that when any railroad shall 
make a reduction" of rates for distances over two hundred and fifty miles, the 
same shall apply to similar distances on all the roads controlled by the same 
company, and in no case shall more be charged for a less than a greater distance. 

Eegulations Concerning Freight Rates. 

6. The freight rates prescribed by the commission are maximum rates, which 
shall not be transcended by the railroads. They 'may carry, however, at less 
than the prescribed rates: Provided, that if they carry for less for one person, 
they shall for the like service carry for the same lessened rate for all persons 
except as mentioned hereafter; and if they adopt less freight rates from one 
station, they shall make a reduction of the same per cent at all stations along 
the line of the road, so as to make no unjust discrimination as against any per- 
son or locality. But when there are between any two points in this state two or 
more competing roads not under the same management or in the same system, 
then the longer line or lines, in order to give said points the benefit of competi- 
tion, may reduce the rates between said two points below the standard tariff, 
without making a corresponding reduction at all stations along the lines of said 
roads: Provided, said reduction shall not make the rates less than the standard 
tariff rates for the shortest line between said points: Provided further, that be- 
fore taking effect the proposed change of rates shall be submitted to and approved 
by the commission. When any special rate is made it shall be submitted to the 
commission for approval, and such special rates shall not be withdrawn without 
thirty days' notice to the commission. 

7. The rates charged for freight service by regular passenger trains may be 
one and a half times that for first-class freight by ordinary freight trains.

21. In cases in which the classification of any article is lowered by a percent- 
age, railroad companies which are allowed an increase on the standard tariff 
shall apply the increase allowed to the reduced classification; but in cases in 
which the classification of any article is raised by percentage, railroad companies 
which are allowed an increase on the standard tariff shall not apply said increase

sioners will investigate and rule in each case. 

28. No common carrier shall, for any cause, subject any article of freight to 
unreasonable delay in receiving, delivering or forwarding the same to its desti- 
nation. 



bb W. O. COEPOEATION COMMISSIOIs". 

29. When a shipment is offered at a point where there are two routes over 
■connecting lines to destination it shall be the duty of the railroad company mak- 
ing shipment to forward same by the shortest route, unless the rate charged over 
the longer route does not exceed that of the shorter, or unless otherwise ordered 
by the shipper, 

30. A charge of no more than two dollars per car will be allowed for switching 
•or transferring a car from any point on any road to any connecting road or ware- 
house within a space of one mile from starting point; over one and not more 
than two miles, three dollars; over two miles and not over three miles, four 
dollars, without regard to weight or contents. 

31. When in the transfer of a car between said points it is necessary to pass 
over the line of any intermediate road or roads, the maximum charge of two, 
three or four dollars, as the case may be, shall be equitably divided between 
the roads at interest. 

32. When a charge is made for the transfer of loaded cars between said points 
no additional charge shall be made for the delivery or return of the empty cars. 

33. All specials less than our standard rates heretofore granted by carriers 
within the jurisdiction of the commission, and which do not conflict with the 
law preventing unjust discrimination, until further orders, will be enforced. 

Posting Taeifps. 

34. Each railroad company doing business within the state of North Carolina 
■shall post, and keep posted, at each of its respective stations in a conspicuous 
place a copy of the schedules of freight and passenger rates prescribed for said 
road by the commission, together with a copy of the commissioners' classification, 
and a table of distances between stations, giving name of each station., And 
\vhen any change in said schedule of rates or classification is made, either by 
the commission or by any railroad company, a copy of said change shall be 
immediately furnished the office of the commissioners and shall also be posted in 
the same manner as the above. 

35. The rates prescribed by the commission shall (except in eases specified) 
.apply in either direction. 

36. An allowance of 500 pounds per car will be made for weight of standards, 
strips and supports of car-load shipments of lumber loaded on flat or gondola 
-cars, but in no case must less than the minimum car-load weight specified in 
-tarifl's be charged for on each car. In computing freight charges under this rule, 
;agents will deduct 500 pounds from the gross weight of each ear-load, then sub- 
tract the tare weight ( the weight of car ) , and extend freight charges on basis of 
remainder, which is the net weight, subject to the minimum car-load weight 
specified in tariffs. (Circular No. 58.) 

37. Shipments of freight, except articles classified first-class or higher, which 
are not delivered at destination, shall be returned between points in this state 
at one-half the rates applying to the reverse direction: Provided, that the full 
amount of freight charges in both directions shall have been paid or guaranteed 
by owners: Provided further, that such return is made within ninety days 
of arrival at destination. Billing for the return shipment must show proper 
reference to the original billing. The foregoing shall not apply on machinery, 
agricultural implements, or other articles returned for repairs: Provided, how- 
ever, that the above rule shall not operate to reduce the minimum charge on 
single shipments. (Circular No. 59.)

In the "Commissioners' Standard Freight Tariff," under the class opposite to 
the distance, if it ends in (and if not, then opposite the next greater distance), 
will be found the rate required. 

Example: To find the rate for 247 miles on a box of clothing weighing 100 
pounds, opposite the word "clothing" in the classification is seen its class, 1 ; 
in the freight tariff, under Class 1, opposite the next greater distance, 250 miles, 
is seen the rate, 65 cents; in the column "miles," 5 signifies five miles or under;

RULES FOR COMPUTING FRACTIONS. 
When any rate in any class in the Standard Tariff is raised or lowered by a 
per cent, the following rules must be observed: 

First. — If the rate thus raised or lowered is in either of classes C, D, F, J, 
or K, the fraction of a half cent must be retained, as the following examples 
will indicate: 

Ex. 1. — Standard rate .' 6.5 

25 per cent added 1.6 



Total 8.1 

From which deduct fraction, leaving desired rate of 8 cents. 

Ex. 2. — Standard rate 9.5 

20 per cent added 1.9 

Total 11.4 

Substituting 5 for the fraction, the desired rate is 11.5 cents. 

Ex. 3. — Standard rate 8. 

20 per cent added 1.6 

Total 9.6 

Substituting 5 for the fraction, the desired rate is 9.5 cents. 

Ex. 4. — Standard rate 5.5 

25 per cent added 1.3 



Total 6.8 

Adding a unit instead of a fraction, the desired rate is 7 cents. 



68 



N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 



Second. — If the rate thus raised or lowered be in any other class than those 
already mentioned, omit fraction of less than half a cent and estimate half a 
cent or more as one cent, thus: 

Ex. 1. — Standard rate 17. 

20 per cent added 3.4 

Total 20.4 

Deducting the fraction, the desired rate is 20 cents. 

Ex. 2. — Standard rate 18. 

20 per cent added 3.6 



Total 21.6 

Estimating the fraction as a unit, the desired rate is 22 cents. 

Thied. — In making reduction, observe the same manner of placing figures be- 
fore deducting the percentage. 

Narrow-gauge railroads, in fixing rates on all freights where a rate per car- 
load is given, will count 15,000 pounds for a car-load, and estimate their charge 
pro rata with rate allowed on standard gauge. 

KULES GOVERNING ERECTION AND LOCATION OF DEPOTS. 

First. — From and after Wednesday, the 26th day of April, 1899, no change of 
freight or passenger depots or flag stations from their present location, nor the 
suspension of the sale of tickets, or the receiving or forwarding of freights from 
stations now in use for such purposes, will be permitted without the consent of 
this commission published in accordance with law. 

Second. — Application for the location of depots and the construction of depot 
buildings must be filed in the North Carolina corporation commission office, with 
all information needed for a full and proper understanding of all interests to be 
affected thereby. 

RULES AND REGULATIONS GOVERNING THE TRANSPORTATION OF 

LIVE STOCK. 
The weights given below are estimated and not actual, and are used simply 
to get the rating on live stock. To illustrate: One horse, mule or horned animal 
is estimated at the same rate as 2,000 pounds of any kind of second-class freight 
at carrier's risk and fourth-class at owner's risk. Therefore, the freight charges 
for fifty miles on one horse, mule or horned animal is the same as on 2,000 
pounds of second-class freight, and would be, according to the standard tariff, 
carrier's risk, 28 cents per 100 pounds, or $5, and at owner's risk, 20 cents per 
100 pounds, or $4.

KULES OF PRACTICE. 69 

The rates on live stock as given in this tariff are based on the following 
maximum valuations: 

Horses and mules not over $120.00 each. 

Horned cattle not over 50.00 each. 

Stallions, jacks and bulls not over 150.00 each. 

Fat hogs and fat calves not over 15.00 each. 

Lambs, stock hogs, stock calves, not over 5.00 each. 

Race horses, stallions, jacks, bulls and other high-priced animals, when shippers 
are not willing to have the same transported at above valuations, will be taken 
only at the following rates on valuation given: 

Value from $150 to $400 add to regular rate 30 per cent. 
Value from $400 to $600 add to regular rate 40 per cent. 
Value from $600 to $800 add to regular rate 60 per cent. 
Value from $800 to $1,000 add to regular rate 100 per cent. 
Over $1,000 subject to special rate by contract. 

Live stock will be taken at the released or owner's risk rate only when contract 
is executed by shipper and station agent. 

Mixed shipment of cattle, hogs, lambs, etc., will be taken in car-loads at car- 
load rates for cattle, but carrier will be released from damage to animals caused 
by their own atcs, or to each other, and from escape, if not haltered, suffocation, 
exhaustion from heat or cold. 

Sucking calves accompanying cows will be charged for at rate for single 
calves. 

Sucking colts accompanying mares will be charged for at double the rate of 
single calves. 

The word "calves" used in these rules and regulations applies only to calves 
under nine months old, and the word "yearling cattle" to cattle over nine months 
and under eighteen months old. 

Pigs, hogs, calves, etc., boxed, crated, or in portable pens, taken at actual 
weight, carrier's risk, first-class; owner's risk, second-class. 

In no case shall the charge for less than a car-load of live stock exceed the 
charge for a car-load. 

Shippers will be expected to feed, water and care for their stock at their own 
expense. When food is furnished by carrier, a charge will be made for the 
same and collected from consignee. 

One, two or three cars of live stock will entitle the owner or his agent to be 
carried free to point of destination of consignment, on the train with the stock, 
to care for the same. Four to seven cars inclusive, belonging to one owner, two 
men in charge, and eight cars or more belonging to one owner, three men in 
charge, which number is the maximum number of attendants that will be carried 
free for one shipment. 

Return transportation not given to owners, agents or attendants.

CIRCULAR No. 36. 

(as amended to JANUARY, 1910.) 



STORAGE AND DEMURRAGE RULES-TIME LIMIT FOR PLACING OF CARS AND DELIVERY OF 
FREIGHT— LOCAL TRANSFER AND SWITCHING CHARGES. 

Storage and demurrage may be assessed by railroad companies on all freight 
received for delivery in car-load lots or in less than car-load lots if not removed 
in conformity with the following rules and regulations. 

EULE I. 

No storage or demurrage charges, however, shall in any case be allowed unless 
notice of the arrival of goods has been given to the owner or consignee thereof 
by the railroad company, and it shall be the duty of such railroad company to 
give prompt notice to consignee of the arrival of goods, together with the con- 
tents, weight and amount of freight charges due thereon as shown by way-bill, 
and when goods or freight of any kind in car-load consignments, said notice must

ering same in writing in person, or by leaving same at consignee's place of busi- 
ness or by depositing it in the post-office. 

RULE II. 

For storage of package freights and all freight less than car-load, unloaded in 
depot or warehouse, which is not removed by the owner thereof from the custody 
of the railroad company within forty-eight hours (not including Sundays and 
legal holidays), a charge of storage for each day or fraction of a day that such 
consignment may remain in the custody of the carrier of one cent per hundred 
pounds per day, with minimum charge of five cents for any one package or lot 
for any one consignee, may be made; but not more than one dollar per day for 
any one consignment not in excess of a car-load. 

RULE III. 

(as amended.) 
All car-load freight taking track delivery and such as is to be unloaded by 
consignee, which is not unloaded from cars containing same within forty-eight 
hours (not including Sundays and legal holidays) after the car or cars are 
placed accessible for unloading, may be subject to a charge of one dollar per car 
for each day or fraction of a day that said car or cars remain loaded: Provided, 
however, that seventy-two hours shall be allowed for the unloading of fertilizers, 
brick and the following commodities, when in bulk only: Cotton seed, cotton- 
seed hulls, grain, lime, tan bark and dressed lumber in box cars. Fertilizer

least one car shall be unloaded daily. 



RULES OF PEACTICE. 71 

RULE IV. 

When consignors sliip goods consigned to themselves or order, it shall be the 
duty of the railroad company to giA'e legal notice to such consignees or persons 
to whom shipping directions order delivery. This notice may be addressed by 
mail to the consignee at point of delivery, and demurrage will begin as in other 
cases of notice by mail; and the mailing of such notice shall be sufficient notice 
in such cases, whether the consignee actually received the same or not. 

RULE V. 

The time allowed for removing freight before storage or demurrage charges 
apply will be computed from 7 o'clock A. M. of the day following date of notice 
( Sundays and legal holidays excepted ) . 

RULE VI. 
A consignee living more than five ( 5 ) miles from the depot, and whose freight 
is destined to his residence or place of business so located, shall not be subject to 
storage or demurrage charges allowed in the above rules until a sufficient time 
has elapsed after notice for said consignee to remove said goods by the exercise 
of due diligence: Provided, that in the delivery of car-load freight railroads 
will not be required in any case to hold freight free of demurrage for a longer 
period than five (5) days after notice, except as otherwise provided in Rule II. 

RULE VII. 
Where, upon the request of an intending shipper, the railroad company places 
a ear or cars at a reasonably accessible point on its team tracks or on a private 
track designated by the shipper, free loading time shall expire forty-eight hours 
(not including Sundays or legal holidays) from the time such car or cars are 
so placed, and thereafter a demurrage charge of not more than one dollar per 
car per day or fraction of a day may be assessed and collected on all such cars 
as have not been tendered to the railroad company with shipping instructions. 

RULE VIII. 
When any railroad company fails to deliver freights at the depot or to place 
loaded cars at an accessible place for unloading within forty-eight hours (not 
including Sundays and legal holidays ) , computed from 7 o'clock A. M. the day 
after the arrival of same, the shipper or consignee shall be paid one dollar per 
day for each day or fraction of a day said delivery is so delayed: Provided, the 
railroad company may require the payment of freight before delivery. 

RULE IX. 

(Repealed. See Laws 1907, c. 217, s. 3.) 

RULE X. 

( Repealed. ) 

(See s. 2632, Revisal 1905.) 



72 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSIOJN-. 

RULE XI. 

Whenever the weather during the period of free time is so severe, inclement or 
rainy that it is impracticable to secure means of removal or loading of freight, 
or where from the nature of the goods removal or loading would cause injury or 
damage, such time shall be added to the free period, and no demurrage charges 
shall be allowed for such additional time. This rule applies to the state of the 
weather during business hours, 

RULE XII, 

The commission reserves the right to hear and grant application to suspend 
the operation of these rules upon complaint of abuse, or whenever justice shall 
demand this course. 

RULE XIII. 

LOCAL TRANSFER AND SWITCHING CHARGES. 

Railroad companies shall furnish shippers cars for loading, and shall also 
accept from each other cars loaded at warehouses or side tracks of one road for 
delivery at side tracks or warehouses on the other road within the space of two 
miles beyond the starting point. The railroad company furnishing the car and 
performing the initial movement may charge two and one-half dollars per car. 

RULE XIV. 

When car is destined to a warehouse on a connecting line which requires 
switching, the company so receiving and delivering may charge $1.50 additional. 

After car is placed for loading, the shipper shall load same within twenty-four 
hours therefrom, and consignee shall, when car is placed for unloading, unload 
same within twenty-four hours; otherwise the usual demurrage charges may be 
made. 



RULE XV, 

Where a consignee shall give to the delivering carrier notice of his refusal to 
accept a shipment of freight properly tendered in pursuance of the bill of lading, 
the delivering carrier shall give to the consignor legal notice of such refusal, and 
if the consignor fails Vv^ithin three days thereafter to give direction for the dis- 
position of such goods, he shall thenceforth become liable to such carrier for the 
usual storage charges, to the same extent, and at the same rate, as such charges 
are now, under like circumstances, by the rules of this commission, imposed upon 
consignees who neglect or refuse, after notice of arrival, to remove freight of 
like character. 

And where a consignee of freight either in car-loads or less than car-loads shall 
fail or neglect to remove such freight within six days after the expiration of 
free time, then the carrier shall, through the agent at point of shipment, so 
notify the shipper, unless the consignee has signified his acceptance of the prop- 
erty. Said notice may either be served personally or given by mail. 

No such notice to the consignor, however, shall be required of a carrier com- 
pany where goods are shipped in less than car-load lots, unless such goods, or 
the packages containing the same, or way-bill, shall legibly bear the name and 
address of the consignor thereof. 

A consignee who has once refused to accept a consignment of goods shall not 
thereafter be entitled to receive the same, except upon the payment of all charges 
for storaofe which would otherwise have accrued.

sit, 4, 000 pounds to be the maxi- 
mum weight of ice and packing 
carried free in any car of ale,

ance shall not be construed as 
permitting any ale, beer or por- 
ter to be carried free if less than 
4,000 pounds of ice and packing 
be loaded in the car. Ice must 
not be transported free w ith less 
than car-load shipments of ale,

tained weight of contents, after 
deducting 4, 000 pounds for ice 
and packing (or the actual 
weight of ice and packing if less 
than 4,000 pounds), and at the 
established rates applying on 
ale, beer and porter in car-loads. 

No claim for reduction, if 
billing made on this basis, shall 
be allowed, unless it can be 
shown that the weights were 
incorrectly taken. 

The following Rule will apply 
in ascertaining the weight on 
beer in car-loads containing ice 
or other packing: 

The car of beer shall be 
weighed on track scales at ori- 
ginating point, and, when iced 
in transit, also at destination.

Rules governing transportation of high explosives: 

High explosives, such as atlas, hercules, giant, 
dittmar, commercial, setna, hecla and other nitro- 
glycerine powders; dynamite, nitro-glycerine, gly- 
noin oil, nitroleum, blasting oil, nitrated oil or pow- 
der, mixed with any such oil or fibre, saturated with 
any such articles or substances, will be received for 
transportation only at steamship or railroad com- 
panies' option only under the following conditions: 

First. — Shipments to be packed in strong boxes, 
not too large to be readily handled by one person, 
and each package to be plainly marked "Explosive," 
"Dangerous," on top and on one side or on one end. 

Second. — It is understood that in these articles 
the nitro-glycerine is thoroughly absorbed in char- 
coal, sawdust, infusorial earth, wood fibre, carbonate 
of magnesia, or other similar substances, and that 



the amount of the nitro-glycerine is such that the 
temperature on the hottest summer day will not 
occasion any leakage; also that the powder formed 
by that absorbent material and the nitro-glycerine is 
always made up into cartridges and never put into 
the boxes in bulk. Should any package show out- 
ward signs of any oily stain, or other indication that 
absorption is not perfect, or that the amount of 
nitro-glycerine is greater than the absorbent can 
carry, the packages must be refused in every in- 
stance and must not be allowed to remain on the 
property of the carrier. 

Third. — Nitrate or other explosive preparations 
not in accordance with the above specifications (ex- 
cept ordinary black powder) will in no case be re- 
ceived for shipment. 



15- 



N. C. COKPOEATIOISr COMMISSION. 



Rules governing transportation of high explosives — Continued. 



Fourth. — Shipments must be so loaded that 
boxes will lie bottom side down, it being understood 
that the cartridges are so placed in the boxes that 
they will lie on their sides and never on their ends 
when so loaded. The boxes must be so placed in car 
that they cannot fall to the floor under any circum- 
stances. 

Fifth. — Shipments of common black powder 
may be received if packed in good, substantial iron 
or wooden kegs, packages not to exceed one hundred 
and fifty pounds in weight, unless for export, when 
larger packages will be received. 

Sixth. — In no case will percussion caps, explod- 
ers, safety squibs, fulminators, friction matches or 
any other articles of like nature be loaded in same 
car with any of the above explosives. There cannot 
be too great care excercised in this matter. 

Seventh. — Safety-fuse will be received for ship- 
ment at any time it is offered and the restrictions in 
regard to shipping powder do not apply to it. 

Eighth. — As special powder cars are not in 
general service among roads, agents must know 
that none of the above explosive substances are 
■loaded at their stations in old cars, having loose 
boards or cracks in the roof or sides. Cars for car- 
rying these explosives must be first-class in every 
respect; must be tight everywhere, and must have 
doors that can be closely shut, leaving no cracks for 
sparks to get in. When explosives are carried in 
full car-loads, the doors must be stripped, except 
when the cars are equipped with the new Wagner car 
doors, which must never be stripped. Agents must 



refuse to receive from connecting lines cars loaded 
with explosives, unless the requirements of this 
section have been complied with. 

Ninth. — Every car containing any of the above 
explosive substances, either full car-load or small 
package, mvist be plainly marked on both sides, 
"Powder — Handle Carefully," so that those having 
charge of it will not do anything ignorantly to in- 
cur danger. This should be done by the shipper of 
full car-loads, and by the agent when packages are 
loaded in car at his station. Cars containing explo- 
sives received from connecting lines, if not marked 
when received, must be marked by the agent at the 
connecting point. Agents will be held strictly re- 
sponsible that no car containing explosives leaves 
their stations until it is properly marked. 

Tenth. — Agents must notify conductors when- 
ever a car containing explosives is to be taken from 
their stations; and conductors must not take from 
any station or siding any car known to contain ex- 
plosive substances unless Rules Eight and Nine have 
Iseen complied with, and such cars must be placed 
in their train as near the middle as possible. 

Eleventh.— Agents should notify all the ship- 
pers in their neighborhood of the requirements. 

Twelfth. — ^The law provides heavy penalties, 
both to shippers and common carriers, for a viola- 
tion of these rules, and agents and shippers should 
be careful to see that such shipments are put up, 
naarked and forwarded only under their proper 
names and in accordance with these provisions.

C. L. weight will be the full capacity of the tank, 
the contents of the tank to be computed at six and 
four-tenths pounds per gallon, subject to a minimum 
weight of 20,000 pounds. When in barrels or half- 
barrels, C. L., or L. C. L., weight will be computed at 
400 pounds per barrel, and 235 pounds per half-barrel. 
When in square cans, completely cased, each can 
containing ten gallons, C. L., or L. C. L., at 80 pounds

Mixed car-loads of oil in barrels or cases will be 
taken authorized C. L. rates based on the foregoing 
weights. When less than aforesaid minimum car- 
loads are shipped, L. C. L. rates will be charged. In 



no case, however, will less than a car-load from one 
consignor to one consignee and destination on same 
day be charged more than for a full car-load. 

Transportation companies do not furnish tank 
cars. When they are furnished by shippers, trans- 
portation companies will pay three-fourths cent 
per mile run each way, and will return the empty 
tank to point of shipment without charge. 

Shipments of above articles at rates authorized 
are entirely at owner's risk of leakage and loss oi 
damage by fire. 

Petroleum and its products in tank cars will be 
delivered only when consigned to parties s\,t points 
at which they have proper unloading and storage 
facilities; and when shipments in tank cars are con- 
signed to parties who have not such facilities the 
shipments will be returned to the shippers at their 
risk and expense.

Cotton-seed oil, in barrels, governed by the following rules, viz. 



First. — Inasmuch as the gross tare and net weight 
of each barrel is plainly marked on the head of the 
barrel, when shipments are loaded at the mills, agents 
at shipping points will require shippers to load marked 
head up, ascertaining the gross weight from each bar- 
rel and billing accordingly. 

Second. — In cases where shippers fail to so load, 
agents will carefully weigh on track scales and bill at 
weight so ascertained. 

Third. — ^When shipments are hauled to depots, the 
gross weight must be ascertained from each barrel. 



Fourth. — In cases where billing fails to show ship- 
ments to have been weighed at point of origin or in 
transit, receiving lines must in all cases bill at weights 
ascertained in accordance with Rules 1 and 2. 

If there are no track scales at the junction points, 
weights must be ascertained at destination. By des- 
tination is meant the point where final delivery is 
effected or delivery is made to connecting lines at the 
gateways of this Association. 

Fifth. — The minimum C. L. weight of cotton-seed 
oil in barrels will be 24,000 pounds.

when full by express — the fact that 
the full shipment has been paid for 
at full rates justifying a reduced rate 
for the empty package, the return of 
which is necessary for the transpor- 
tation of future shipments ; therefore, 
empty packages which were not 
shipped by express, when full, must 
be charged for at the merchandise

certain shipments will entitle the 
empty packages to be returned with- 
out additional charge, such empties

the gross weight at one-half of the 
rate per 100 pounds applicable to the 
Commodity shipped in the Carriers, 
when full, pound rates, minimum 
charge 30 cents, is less than the charge 
at the rate per Empty, such lower

A. — (1.) Packages containing Money, Bonds, or 
other Securities must be received for transportation 
only when deUvered at the office by shippers. Ship- 
ments of Coin or Bullion too heavy to be carried 
by hand, may be called for by wagon, but a repre- 
sentative of the shipper must accompany and retain 
custody of the shipment until delivered by shippers 
at the Express Company's office. 

(2.) A receipt of the prescribed form must be given 
for all matter received. Shipments must not be 
received for transportation at the rates named in 
the Money Classification unless the value is declared 
by shipper and marked by him upon the package. 

(3.) Packages of Money, Bonds or other Securities 
in amounts of $500.00 or over must not be received 
for transportation unless the person who delivers 
the package to the Company shall, at the time of 
said delivery, write his name in ink on the package. 

(4.) The charge on any shipment carried at rates 
established by the Money Classification, must be a 
multiple of 5, and when, in computing charges the 
result is not a multiple of 5, the next higher multiple 
of 5 must be charged. 

(5.) Wherever a Special Rate on Currency, Coin, 
Bullion or Securities is established, it removes the 
application of the Classification Scale rate between 
the sa^ne points on the same commodity. 

(6.) When "Currency" is mentioned in the following 
articles it means "Paper Currency," and when "Cur- 
rency Rate" is mentioned it means Scale "R" or 
"Special Rates on Currency" where issued; when 
"Merchandise rate" is mentioned it means the Mer- 
chandise rate applicable to a merchandise shipment 
of not more than 100 pounds. 

(7.) Unless otherwise provided, a minimum charge 
applies on a single shipment for each Company car- 
rying, except that between points where a single 
graduate is authorized, the minimum will be the 
same as if carried through by one Company. 

(8.) When charges are prepaid, the package and 

way-bill must be marked "Prepaid $. " 

When so marked or way-billed, package must be 
delivered without collection of charges from the 
consignee, and any undercharge expensed on the 
forwarding Agent, to be collected from the shipper,

If Charges are paid in part, notation to that effect 
must appear on the package and on the Way-bill. 

B. — (1.) Unless otherwise provided, graduated 
charges shown in Scales "S" or "U" must be assessed 
on shipments of less than $1,000.00, and where the 
rate per $1,000.00 applicable to a shipment is not 
shown in those Scales, the next higher rate must be 
used for ascertaining the charge, M^hich must not 
be more than for $1,000.00 at the rate applicable. 

(2.) Unless otherwise provided, on shipments 
charged for at the rates named in the Money Classi- 
fication carried by more than one Company, except 
between points where a single graduate is authorized, 
a separate charge must be assessed for each Company 
carrying. 

C. — (i.) United States or Canadian Silver Coin. — 
On amounts of $1,000.00 and over the rate per $1,000.00, 
face value, is the same as the rate on Merchandise 
per 100 pounds between the same points, but never 
LESS THAN 50 ccnts per $1,000.00; on amounts less 
than $1,000.00, charge according to Scale "U", using 
the same rate as is in effect on Merchandise per 100 
pounds, but the charge for less than $1,000.00 must not 
be more than would be charged for $1,000.00. Exam- 
ple. — If the Merchandise rate is 40 cents per 100 
pounds, the rate on Silver Coin in amounts of $1,000.00 
and over will be 50 cents per $1,000.00, and in amounts 
less than $1,000.00, the charge will be the graduate 
under the 40 cent rate, as shown in Scale "U." 



(2.) Nickel or Copper Coins must be charged the 
same as a Merchandise shipment of the same weight 
and value (see Rule 11). Two or more packages con- 
taining Nickel or Copper Coins, forwarded by one

local address, must be charged for on the aggre- 
gate weight and value. 

(3.)Packages containing both Currency and Coin, 
must be charged the rate applicable to the kind of 
coin taking the higher rate, but the charge must 
not be greater than the aggregate separate charges 
on each kind of money enclosed, except that packages 
containing Currency and Silver, when Silver does 
not exceed $5.00, may be taken at the same rate as 
though all Currency, and except that packages con- 
taining Gold Coin and Silver when Silver does not 
exceed $5.00, may be taken at the same rate as though 
all Gold Coin. 

(4.) Two or more packages of Coin, to which the 
same classification applies, when forwarded by one 
shipper, at the same time, to one consignee, at one 
local address, must be charged for on the aggregate 
value. If the weight is a factor in determining the 
charge, the weights must also be aggregated. 

D.— (1.) Gold or Dore Bullion, Gold Dust, Gold 
Sulphides, Gold Cyanides, or any other form of 
Uncoined Gold, must be charged Gold Coin rates 
on value and Merchandise graduated rates on weight 
in excess of 4 pounds to the $1,000.00 value. 

(2.) Silver Bullion, Silver Sulphides, Silver Pre- 
cipitates, Silver Cyanides or any form of Uncoined 
Silver, Silver Coin of Mexico, South America and 
other Foreign Countries, excepting Canada, must 
be charged for on the market value as follows: In 
amounts of $1,000.00 or more, the rate per $1,000.00 
will be the same as the Merchandise rate per 100 
pounds, but not less than 50 cents per $1,000.00; if the 
weight exceeds 100 pounds to the $1,000.00 value, 
charge additionally Merchandise Pound Rates on 
the excess weight. For amounts less than $1,000.00 
charge the same as for a Merchandise package of 
the same weight and value, but the charge for less 
than $1,000.00 must not be more'than would be charged 
for $1,000.00. 

E. — (1.) Charges on Securities are based upon the 
market value, and shippers must be required to 
mark on all packages of Securities the character 
and market value of the contents thereof. If the

DECISIONS 

AND 

ADJUSTMENT OF COMPLAINTS, 



IN RE CONNECTION OE NOREOLK AND SOUTHERN RAILWAY TRAIN 
NO. 1 WITH ATLANTIC COAST LINE RAILROAD TRAIN NO. 90 OR NO. 
34 AT WILSON. 

There was nb formal complaint in this case, but it was suggested to the corpo- 
ration commission that connection of the above trains would accommodate thou- 
sands in a year wishing to go out of Raleigh to northeastern North Carolina, and 
that this connection could be secured by requiring "Shoo-fly" train from Golds- 
boro to Norfolk to leave Goldsboro fifteen minutes later and the Norfolk and 
Southern train No. 1 to leave Raleigh fifteen minutes earlier, allowing twelve 
minutes from arrival of trains at Wilson for transfer of passengers. 

It was further represented that passengers going out of Raleigh at 4:30 A. M. 
to northeastern North Carolina Atlantic Coast Line points often miss connection. 

Upon this suggestion, this commission, of its own motion, undertook to inves- 
tigate the matters alleged. After some correspondence with the Norfolk and 
Southern Railway and the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company, which resulted 
in their declining to make the change of schedule, notice was given them and 
also the party who suggested the change of schedule that the matter would be 
heard and investigated at the office of the corporation commission on the 27th 
day of February. The party who suggested the change did not appear or tender 
any evidence other than the statement originally made. 

H. K. Wolcott, one of the receivers of the Norfolk and Southern Railway, and 
others appeared and represented that company; W. H. Newell, general superin- 
tendent of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company, appeared and represented 
that company. 

From the statements, correspondence, schedules on file in this office, and admis- 
sions made in the conference, the following facts are found: 

The distance from Raleigh to Wilson via Southern Railway and Atlantic Coast 
Line Railroad is 54 miles; by the Norfolk and Southern Railway it is 49 miles. 
By the present schedules, passengers going out of Raleigh to northeastern North 
Carolina points on the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad can leave daily at 4:30 
A. M. on No. 112, Southern Railway train, making connection with No. 34, At- 
lantic Coast Line train, at Selma. This is a safe connection, as it has a margin 
of an hour and thirty-four minutes, and is not often missed, as was suggested 
to the commission. By this connection such passengers could reach most of the 
points in northeastern North Carolina in the forenoon as follows: Tarboro, 9:37 
A. M.; Washington, 11:55 A. M. ; Greenville, 11:21 A. M. ; Williamston, 11:25 
A. M.; Plymouth, 12:30 A. M.; Hobgood, 10:02 A. M. ; Gates, 11:49 A. M.; 
Scotland Neck, 10:20 A, M.; Weldon, 10:22 A. M.; Spring Hope, 10:05 A. M.; 



228 N. C. COKPOEATION COMMISSIONS'. 

and return to Raleigh at 11:59 P. M. of the same day. This train, No. 112, 
also connects with the Atlantic Coast Line train No. 90 at Goldsboro and makes 
the same schedule to northeastern North Carolina points, as above. 

Passengers going out of Raleigh to northeastern North Carolina Atlantic Coast 
Line points can leave Raleigh at 12:30 P. M. and connect with the Atlantic 
Coast Line train No. 80 at Selma and reach any point on the Atlantic Coast 
Line Railroad in the same afternoon, except such points on the Norfolk Division 
as are between Hobgood and the state line, and return to Raleigh at 11:59 
P. M. of the same day. Or such passengers, if they do not care to leave Raleigh 
so early as 4:30 A. M., can take the Norfolk and Southern train No. 1 to Wilson 
and there take the Atlantic Coast Line train No. 48, Wilmington to Norfolk, and 
reach Tarboro and any other point on the Norfolk Division in North Carolina 
and return to Raleigh the same afternoon at 11:59. Or such passengers can 
leave on the Seaboard Air Line Railway train at 11:05 A. M. and connect with 
the Atlantic Coast Line at Weldon for Atlantic Coast Line points. There are, 
therefore, three opportunities of leaving Raleigh in the forenoon and one in the 
early afternoon of each day for northeastern North Carolina points. 

There has been no complaint to this commission that this schedule is not 
satisfactory to the traveling public, except by the party above referred to, or that 
it was necessary for the convenience of the traveling public that the suggested 
connection be made. This party informed the commission that he suffered the 
inconvenience of having to take Southern Railway train at 4:30 A. M. when 
bound for destination between Hobgood and the state line, when he would have 
preferred taking the Norfolk and Southern train at a later hour, but he did not 
inform the commission as to how often in the past he had taken this trip nor 
how often he contemplated doing so in the future. It is true that he also in- 
formed the commission that on the same train on which he traveled there were 
several other passengers who, like him, would have preferred rising at a later 
hour than 4:30 A. M., but he gave the commission no information as to who 
such parties were or how often they proposed to make the trip in the future 
so that they might be inquired of as to the extent of the inconvenience to them. 

Putting back schedule of No. 90, Atlantic Coast Line train, fifteen minutes 
and putting up schedule of Norfolk and Southern train No. 1 would not effect 
the connection. This would require at least forty-seven minutes, and, if divided 
between each of the railroads, would require a change of schedule of, say, 
twenty-four minutes. To make the schedule of Atlantic Coast Line train No. 90 
twenty-three or even fifteen minutes later at Wilson would inconvenience the 
traveling public of those trains from Goldsboro to Norfolk, and also on its con- 
nection for Greenville, Washington, Plymouth, Williamston, Scotland Neck, etc. 
To make a change of schedule of Atlantic Coast Line train No. 34 fifteen minutes 
later would inconvenience the traveling public from Fayetteville to Richmond, 
as well as that portion served by No. 90, Atlantic Coast Line train, as it is by 
means of connection with this latter train at Rocky Mount that northeastern 
North Carolina is served, and this train would, therefore, have to be held at 
Rocky Mount for connection with No. 34. The suggestion of changing the sched- 
ule of either No. 90 or No. 34, Atlantic Coast Line trains, is impracticable. It 
would change the schedule of all Atlantic Coast Line trains in northeastern 
North Carolina, which, the commission is informed, are very satisfactory to the 
traveling public. It would inconvenience much the greater part of the travf.ling

public on the Norfolk and Southern Railway train No. 1 to make it half an hour 
earlier leaving Raleigh. This company reported that the train hauled 16,088 
passengers out of Raleigh during the last calendar year, 2,200 of them stopping 
at Wilson, 18 at Norfolk and 3 beyond Norfolk. 

It is doubtless true that, if a schedule were made for this train leaving Raleigh 
later than 4:30 A. M., with sufficient margin to make it a safe and certain con- 
nection with the Atlantic Coast Line train at Wilson, that such passengers out 
of Raleigh as desire to reach northeastern North Carolina Atlantic Coast Line 
points would travel on this train, but this would be a very small per -cent of the 
public travel on thjs train. The principal part of the public travel on this train 
is to points on the Norfolk and Southern Railway's own line. This company in- 
formed the commission that the convenience of the traveling public out of Ra- 
leigh would be promoted by a change of schedule to a later rather than an earlier 
hour, and that, if not made before, it would be made after the completion of the 
bridge w^hich is now being constructed across the sound between Edenton and 
Mackey's Ferry, so as to make it at least one hour later than the present schedule. 

To conclude : ( 1 ) That railroads should furnish adequate passenger facilities 
for the traveling public over its own line and make such connection at junction 
points with other railroads as are necessary for the convenience of the traveling 
public; but that they should not be required to change their schedule to make 
such connection with other railroads as will inconvenience more persons than it 
will help. This principle was recognized by this commission in re connection 
of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad and Southern Railway trains at Sanford. 
In that proceeding it was ordered that Southern Railway discontinue its con- 
nection Avith its main line at Greensboro in order to promote the convenience 
of a greater part of the traveling public over its line. 

The principle enunciated in Selma Connection case was that railroads must fur- 
nish adequate passenger facilities for the traveling public. The order in that 
case did not inconvenience any part of the traveling public. 

(2) That the changes in schedules suggested would inconvenience the traveling 
public on both the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad and the Norfolk and Southern 
Railway. 

(3) That with existing schedules out of Raleigh, it is not necessary for the 
convenience of the traveling public to require the railroads to make the suggested 
connection, 

(4) That this proceeding should be dismissed, and it is so ordered.

IN RE CONNECTION OF NORFOLK AND SOUTHERN RAILWAY TRAIN 
No. 1 WITH ATLANTIC COAST LINE TRAIN NO. 90 OR NO. 34 at WIL- 
SON, N. C. 

I regret that I cannot agree with my colleague=; in denying the traveling public 
the de«ired convenience of the connection at Wilson between the Norfolk and 
Southern Railroad and the Atlantic Coast Line. I have made a careful exami- 
nation of all the schedules on both roads and have given thorough investigation 



230 N". C. CORPOEATION COMMISSIOIM". 

to this matter, and am forced to the conclusion that this connection can be made 
without any expense to either road, and with the slightest inconvenience to both 
of them. At present the Norfolk and Southern train leaves Raleigh at 6:35 
A. M. and reaches Wilson at 8:35 A. M., to find when it reaches there that the 
train, No. 34, running from Fayetteville to Richmond, has left Wilson at 8:17 
and that train No. 90, from Goldsboro to Norfolk, has left Wilson at 8:00 
o'clock, thus breaking the connection on No. 34 by eighteen minutes. This train, 
to wit, No. 90, waits at Rocky Mount for train No. 34, and, therefore, in order 
to make the connection at Wilson, it will be necessary for the Norfolk and 
Southern train to leave Raleigh eighteen minutes earlier than at present, and 
for the Atlantic Coast Line train No. 34 to leave Fayetteville ten minutes 
later. This would give ten minutes to make the change at Wilson, as there is 
now only eighteen minutes difference at Wilson. 

Where a reasonable demand of the public can be granted with such slight 
change of schedule on the part of the railroad, which causes no inconvenience to 
the railroad, it ought to be granted, and I was surprised that the railroads did 
not make this change of their own motion, because it is so reasonable that I can 
find no ground upon which to base the refusal of the railroad to grant, or the 
refusal by the commission to compel the change by the railroads. At present all 
persons traveling from Raleigh, in the early part of the day, to the northeastern 
part of the state, have to leave Raleigh on a freight train with passenger coaches 
attached, at the unseasonable hour of 4:30 A. M., when, by the slight change of 
schedule suggested, they could reach their destination at the same hour by 
leaving Raleigh two hours later upon the passenger train over the Norfolk and 
Southern Railroad. To see delicate women and children in midwinter and in 
all sorts of weather subjected to this needless exposure is enough to call for 
consideration, even if we deem that men should submit to it. There is but 
eighteen minutes difference at Wilson. The Norfolk and Southern train should 
leave Raleigh eighteen minutes earlier, that is, if it M^ould leave Raleigh at 
6:17 instead of 6:35 A. M. and the Atlantic Coast Line train would leave 
Fayetteville ten minutes later, the connection could be made with ample margin 
for the transfer at Wilson, or the Atlantic Coast Line train which leaves Fayette- 
ville at 5:30 could leave at 5:40, these two changes would accommodate the pub- 
lic at Fayetteville. As this train originates at Fayetteville and the Norfolk and 
Southern originates at Raleigh, these changes would break no connection, as 
both these Atlantic Coast Line trains stop twenty minutes in Rocky Mount; 
there is no reason why they should not leave Wilson a few minutes later to 
accommodate the traveling public. This very slight change would not only be a 
great convenience to all people who go from Raleigh to northeastern North Car- 
olina, allowing them to leave home two hours later in the morning than at 
present, but would also work a great convenience to the people living along 
the forty-nine miles of road between Raleigh and Wilson, who may have business 
in any part of northeastern North Carolina dependent upon the connection at 
Wilson. 

Since the action of the majority of the commission, it has come to my attention 
that on Monday of this week several parties left Wendell, desiring to reach 
their homes in the early part of the day, at points northeast of Rocky Mount; 
but because they missed this connection at Wilson by eighteen minutes, they 
were compelled to remain in that town the most of the day. If I had not before 



DECISIONS AND COMPLAINTS. 231 

known that this connection was important, the serious inconvenience of these 
gentlemen, which is but a sample of the daily inconvenience caused by breaking 
this connection, it would have been enough to convince me that the slight change 
there ought to be made. 

As to the powers of this commission to order the change, the supreme court 
and the United States supreme court have approved the finding of this commission 
when the Selma connection was made some years ago, although that connection 
required the Atlantic Coast Line to put on an extra train, which the railroad 
company said would operate to their loss. The courts held, and rightly, that 
the prime object of running a railroad was public convenience. The Wilson 
connection now asked for can be made without costing any railroad one dollar, 
without requiring the employment of an additional man, and without incon- 
venience to anybody. All that is required is that the two railroads be made to 
adjust their schedules, so as to divide between them the eighteen minutes neces- 
sary to make the connection at Wilson. Inasmuch as the Norfolk and Southern 
Railroad originates at Raleigh and is dependent upon no connection, and the 
Atlantic Coast Line's two trains originate at Fayetteville and Goldsboro, de- 
pendent upon no connection that would make this change inconvenient, I believe 
that the public interest demands that the commission order the Wilson con- 
nection. 

As to the number of people to be accommodated, the evidence taken in the case 
of the Selma connection showed that ten or twelve thousand people per year 
would be affected. All these people wete traveling from the northeastern part 
of the state, but, of course, it must be admitted that as many travel from 
Raleigh to the northeastern part of North Carolina (except those that now live 
over the Norfolk and Southern to Wilson), and all these are now incommoded 
by the failure to make connection at Wilson. The chief objection, if not the 
sole objection, made by the railroads to the Wilson connection is that they have 
been running the present schedule a long time, and do not like to be forced to 
change; this is particularly true of the Atlantic Coast Line. I cannot conceive 
that this is a reasonable objection, or that it ought to Weigh to require hundreds 
of men, women and children to rise two hours earlier in the morning and spend 
two useless hours on the train, when a few minutes change could make the close 
connection at Wilson. But even this objection by the Atlantic Coast Line is not 
correct, for in the last few years the arriving time of the Atlantic Coast Line at 
Wilson has been changed several times with a variation of more than eighteen 
minutes now necessary to accommodate the traveling public. An examination 
of the schedules of the Atlantic Coast Line shows that No. 34, from Fayetteville, 
reached Wilson as follows: 



August, 1906 
June, 1907 . . 
May, 1908 . . . 
January, 1909 



Now it will be seen from these changes that the objection that they do not 
wish to change their schedules does not weigh, because of their own motion the 
train reached Wilson at 8:25 only a few years ago, and all that is asked is that 
it shall restore that schedule of their own, which was in operation, and reached 
Wilson at 8:25 instead of 8:10, as at present. When they reached Wilson at 



232 N. C. COEPOEATION COMMISSION. 

8:25 the Norfolk and Souhtern Railway had not then been completed. If they 
could do it then, and did do it then, there is no reason advanced why it cannot 
be done now. 

I live near that part of the state to be aifected, and I know the great con- 
venience the change would promote. The needless hardship and exposure caused 
the public by the failure to connect at Wilson is a serious matter, and inasmuch 
as the railroads have turned a deaf ear to the reasonable requests of the people 
for this connection, and as the corporation commission has the power to order 
the connection made, I think that we should exercise the pow«r and issue an 
order that, beginning April 1st, the Norfolk and Southern Eailroad train should 
leave Raleigh at 6:20 instead of 6:35 A. M., as at present, and that the Atlantic 
Coast Line train No. 34, going to Richmond, should leave Wilson at 8:27, instead 
of 8:17 A. M., as at present, thus giving ten minutes at Wilson for passengers to 
change cars, and baggage to be transferred. B. F. AYCOCK. 



J. C. STEVENSON & CO. v. ATLANTIC COAST LINE RAILROAD COMPANY. 

This is a complaint that defendant had exacted unlawful storage charges, 
amounting to $3.37. Complaint was filed with this commission December 9, 
1908, and, after considerable correspondence, the commission finds from admis- 
sions therein the following facts: 

On March 29, 1907, complainant delivered to defendant, at Wilmington, N. C, 
four sacks of corn, and took from defendant a receipt for same, for transpor- 
tation to J. A, Sexton, at Harnett Siding. Defendant had no such place on its 
road as Harnett Siding; defendant had a flag stop known as Harnett Junction, 
which is some distance beyond Manchester, to which it transported prepaid 
package freight. Complainant intended that this freight should go to Harnett, 
a station on the Raleigh and Southport Railroad. This freight was carried to 
Manchester because, as defendant states, Harnett Junction was adjacent to that 
point. The consignee ascertained that this freight was at Manchester a short 
time before or on May 10, 1907, and directed that the same be shipped to Harnett, 
care of the Raleigh and Southport at Fayetteville, and it was so shipped. It 
was delivered at destination, with charges as follows: $3.37 storage charges at 
Manchester, and $2.09 freight due the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company 
for transportation from Manchester to Fayetteville. The corn was in a decayed 
state and valueless. 

It appears that complainant Avas at fault in failing to give proper shipping 
directions; defendant was also at fault in undertaking to transport the freight 
without proper shipping directions. Defendant should have held this freight at 
Wilmington, the point of origin, until proper directions were given. 

Harnett Junction is a prepay point, and on this account defendant exacted of 
the complainant prepayment of the freight. Carriers are not liable for package 
freight shipped to prepay stations after goods are unloaded thereat. Such ship- 
ments are at consignee's risk after unloaded at destination. It follows that no 
charge for storage can be made on this class of freight. No notice seems to have 
been given the consignors that this freight was undelivered, though it was re- 
ceived by the defendant on the 29th of March and was not reshipped until 
May 10th. 



DECISIONS AND COMPLAINTS. 233 

The commission is, therefore, of the opinion that the exacted storage charge 
of $3.37 was unlawful, and that the defendant should pay this amount to com- 
plainant, and 

It is so ordered. Franklijn" McNeill,

HUTTON & BOURBONNAIS v. CAEOLINA AND NORTHWESTERN RAIL- 
WAY COMPANY, CALDWELL AND NORTHERN RAILROAD COMPANY. 

M. Squires and Shepherd & Shepherd for plaintiff; J. H. Marion for defend- 
ants. 

Rogers, Commissioner. 

Complaint in this case was heard at Lenoir by Commissioners Beddingfield 
and Rogers, ^^j 6, 1908, and was later dismissed by order of the commission. 
But upon motion of the complainant to rehear, the case is reopened and the 
matters complained of are now considered by the full commission as it is at 
present constituted. 

The complainant in this case, after alleging discrimination in the defendant's 
(Caldwell and Northern Railroad Company) tariff as it applies to Valmead, a 
station on the Caldwell and Northern Railroad, which is discussed in the order 
of the commission heretofore made, insists on the application in this instance 
of a rule of the commissioit governing the transportation of freight, namely: 
"All connecting railroads which are under the management and control, by lease, 
ownership, or otherwise, of one and the same company, shall, for purposes of 
transportation, in applying this tariff, be considered as constituting but one and 
the same road, and the rates shall be computed as upon parts of one and the 
same road, unless otherwise specified." 

The only testimony offered at this hearing is that of defendants' witnesses, 
copies of which appear in the record in this case. The principal witness is Gen- 
eral Manager Nichols of both defendant roads. His testimony, while corrobora- 
tive of the plaintiff's, heretofore filed in the case, as to the manner of operation 
of defendant roads, as to the principal offices, train crew, equipment, movement 
of traffic, and tariffs, it is also explanatory, showing more clearly the existence 
of the two corporations and their dependence each for its maintenance on the 
revenue derived from its own earnings, the necessity for separate tariffs, the 
ownership of the stock and the control of each road. Quoting from his testimony 
(page 2), explaining the relation between the Caldwell and Northern Railroad 
Company and the Carolina and Northwestern Railway Company, Mr. Nichols 
says they are "just that of a very friendly connection" ; and in explaining the 
method of operation he says: "The Caldwell and Northern Railroad Company is 
operated for and by itself; the Carolina and Northwestern Railway Company is 
operated for and by itself; they have connection at Lenoir; they interchange 
cars, interchange business, and run one through train, which is a mixed train, 
from Gastonia to Edgemont, each way a day, run by each road respectively on 
its respective road." As to ownership, witness states (page 3) that the Caldwell 
and Northern Railroad Company is . not owned, controlled or operated by the 
Carolina and Northwestern Railway Company, and that the Carolina and North- 
western Railway Company does not own any of the stock of the Caldwell and 



234 N. C. COKPOKATIOK COMMISSION. 

Northern Railroad Company; that the Caldwell and Northern Railroad Company 
does not own any of the stock of the Carolina and Northwestern Railway Com- 
pany, and there is no contract or lease of any character whatsoever between the 
two roads with respect to operation; that Mr. Barber is president of the Carolina 
and Northwestern Railway Company and the Caldwell and Northern Railroad 
Company, and (page 15) personally owns the majority of stock in both roads. 

In view of this undisputed testimony, the commission is not justified in finding 
that the Caldwell and Northern Railroad Company is operated by the Carolina 
and Northwestern Railway Company, and that the Caldwell and Northern Rail- 
road Company is controlled by the Carolina and Northwestern Railway Company 
by reason of ownership of the stock of the Caldwell and Northern' Railroad Com- 
pany. It proves the contrary. 

It appears from the testimony (page 25) of General Manager Nichols and 
Auditor Kearsley that the Caldwell and Northern Railroad Company didn't pay 
any fixed charges nor operating expenses for last year, nor for the year before; 
neither did the Carolina and Northwestern Railway Company earn fixed charges, 
taxes and expenses of operation last year ; and that the bonded indebtedness of 
the Caldwell and Northern Railroad Company is $543,000. 

The Caldwell and Northern Railroad Company's annual report of operation, 
as appears in the annual report to the commission, December 31, 1908, shows its 
operating revenue to be $35,881.74, and its operating expenses $40,138.06. 

The purpose of the rule of the commission governing transportation of freight, 
quoted herein, is to require connecting roads under the management and control 
of one and the same company, whether by lease or ownership, to apply a tariff 
based on a continuous haul, as if the connecting lines were portions or sections 
of the same road, thereby lowering the rate from that which would otherwise be 
the sum of the locals. 

This rule is enforced when such conditions appear, except where its enforce- 
ment would reduce the tariffs so materially as to affect unjustly the revenues of 
the company. In such cases it is otherwise specified by allowing separate tariffs. 
The commission is of the opinion that the rule does not apply in this case : 

1. For the reason the Carolina and Northwestern Railway Company and the 
Caldwell and Northern Railroad Company are not under the management and 
control of one and the same company, by lease or ownership. 

2. If such a construction of their relations was made, then they would come 
within the exception, having been allowed separate tariffs. 

3. That the earnings of the Caldwell and Northern Railroad Company and its 
financial condition at present will not justify the commission in requiring a 
through tariff and one which, when approved, would provide revenue sufficient 
to maintain both roads. 

Therefore, the commission is of the opinion that the order heretofore made, 
dismissing this case, is proper.

DECISIO^TS AA"D COMPLAINTS. 235 

MORGAXTOX RETAIL MERCHAXTS ASSOCIATIOX v. SOUTHERX RAIL- 
WAY COMPAXY— PETITIOX FOR REMOVAL OF FREIGHT STATIOX. 

Rogers, Com missioner. 

The petitioners in this case, complaining of the Southern Railway's facilities 
for handling freight at Morganton, allege that they are inadequate to meet the 
needs of the town, incur danger to life and property, delay and inconvenience, 
and pray for the removal of the freight depot from its present site south of the 
main line of the railroad to the north side thereof, and enlarged so as to provide 
against the conditions complained of. 

The matter coming before the commission for hearing at Morganton, the 13th 
day of April, 1909, the petitioners are represented by Attorneys A. C. Avery and 
Avery & Erwin, and the defendant by its attorney, L, C. Caldwell. Defendant 
offered no witnesses. Testimony offered in the proceeding by the petitioners was 
reduced to writing and is filed herewith in the case. 

The facts as shown by the evidence are as follows: 

The Southern Railway has, at Morganton, on the south side of its main line, a 
depot built about 1859 or 1860, having along its south side practically its full 
length a spur track, and on its north side a sidetrack extending beyond both to 
the eastward and westward. The end of the building westward, which is pro- 
vided with a platform and single door, is being used for receiving and delivering 
freight. Within a few feet of this platform is a principal street crossing north- 
wardly and southwardly the main line and the sidetracks of the defendant, and 
the teams and those engaged in handling warehouse freight are necessarily be- 
tween the depot and the said street on the westward, while the rails of the rail- 
way lie as near on the northward. That freight cars stand on the side and 
spur tracks almost continually, and that the view eastward is obstructed so that 
moving trains become dangerous to life and property: that seventy-five (75) to 
ninety (90) per cent of the business at Morganton is done by those living on 
the north side of the railway, and they are necessitated in the transaction of 
their business to cross the railroad; that the north side or town side has seventy- 
five (75) per cent or more of the population doing business at this station; that 
the increase in business since the construction of this depot is variously estimated 
from ten to twenty times; the increase in population during this period is from 
six hundred (600) to forty-five hundred (4,500). The depot is used for the 
agent's ofhce, baggage, express and freight, the portion assigned for freight 
being about forty (40) by sixty (60), which does not provide room for the 
handling, assorting and removing freight under the present conditions without 
delay and inconvenience. That removal of the depot to the north side of the 
railway would provide against the danger and inconvenience now existing, and 
an available place for proper accommodations can be had. 

The defendant filed a statement showing the traffic handled at Morganton for 
a period of two years, ending December 31, 1907 and 1908: 

Foncarded. Received. 

1907 $41,458.28 $90,992.93 

1908 34,128.16 84,820.26 

In view of these facts, it is the opinion of the commission that the removal 
of the depot to the north side of the railroad and enlarging the warehouse space 
will promote the convenience, security and accommodation of the public. 
Therefore, it is so ordered. Franklin McXeill, 

April 28, 1909. Chairman. 



236 I^. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

ASHEVILLE DRAY, FUEL AND CONSTRUCTION COMPANY v. SOUTHERN 

RAILWAY COMPANY. 

This is a petition to require defendant to construct a sidetrack to complain- 
ant's industry established at Asheville. 

For convenience of the parties, the case was heard at Asheville February 8, 
1909. 

W. P. Brown, Esq., attorney, represented petitioner, and Messrs. R. M. Ramsey 
and W. IT. Bird, petitioners, were present. G. R. Loyall, general superintendent; 
R. E. Simpson, superintendent, and T. H. Gatlin, engineer maintenance of way, 
were present and represented defendant. 

Oral evidence was taken down by stenographer and typewritten copy thereof 
made and filed in this office. 

Affidavit of S. C. Ramsey and blue print of complainant, dated November 24, 
1905, and blue print of defendant, dated February 3, 1909, were also offered in 
evidence and filed in this office. 

Petitioner offered to pay all cost of constructing the sidetrack. The total cost, 
as estimated by defendant, would be about $4,800. The revenue which will 
accrue to defendant from the sidetrack would be sufficient to reimburse defendant 
in five years for the expense of its construction, if defendant paid the cost of 
same. 

Petitioner applied to defendant for sidetrack before the petition was filed in 
this case, and defendant made survey and reported cost as above and that it 
was practicable to establish the sidetrack, and, in pursuance of this report, peti- 
tioner constructed 180 feet of the track. It was admitted by defendant on the 
hearing that it is practicable to construct the sidetrack asked for in the present 
condition of the yards, but it is claimed that the siding Mill "interfere with de- 
fendant's plans for enlarging the yards by extending the freight house 200 feet 
and erecting a platform for receiving outgoing package freight. 

The evidence showed that defendant has had plans for enlarging freight depot 
at Asheville under contemplation ever since the year 1905, and the failure to 
execute the plans is explained by the financial panic which began the latter part 
of 1907. 

After careful consideration of the evidence offered and personal inspection of 
the yards, the commission is of the opinion that the sidetrack, if constructed as 
asked for, will not interfere with the proposed improvement and will not inter- 
fere with facilities for getting teams and wagons to said proposed improvements; 
and, as this is the only defense urged by defendant: 

It is ordered that the defendant construct said siding, as prayed for, so as to 
connect the 180 feet of siding already constructed with defendant's tracks, upon 
complainants paying the cost thereof, and that this work be done within sixty 
days from the date hereof. Franklin McNeill,

DECISIONS AND COMPLAINTS. 237 

MORGANTON RETAIL MERCHANTS ASSOCIATION v. SOUTHERN RAIL- 
WAY COMPANY— IN RE HEARING. 

Rogers, Commissioner. 

The matters complained of in the petition filed in the above entitled case were 
heard by the commission on the 13th day of April, 1909, at Morganton, and 
they report findings of fact, and an order in said case was made April 28, 1909. 

The respondents thereupon excepted to the findings and the order, and the mat- 
ter was reheard at Raleigh, North Carolina, May 24, 1909. J. H. Pearson, peti- 
tioner, with J. W. Bailey, attorney, represented the petitioners; W. B. Rodman, 
attorney, represented the respondents. Evidence of T. H. Gatlin, engineer of 
maintenance of way; E. J. Galloway, agent at Morganton, and G. R. Loyall, 
general superintendent, was heard on behalf of defendant company, and the evi- 
dence of J. H. Pearson on behalf of petitioners. 

The additional evidence and the further consideration of all the testimony 
does not, in the opinion of the commission, change the material facts found in 
the original hearing: 

Therefore, the order in this case is affirmed and the exceptions herein over- 
ruled. 

June 18, 1909. 



CITIZENS OF SANFORD v. SEABOARD AIR LINE RAILWAY, ATLANTIC 
COAST LINE RAILROAD COMPANY, SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY— 
IN THE MATTER OF UNION PASSENGER STATION. 

Complainants allege that the passenger depot facilities at Sanford are inade- 
quate and that defendants should be required to erect a suitable passenger 
station at that point. 

The matter was heard at the office of the corporation commission, in Raleigh, 
on the 24th day of May, 1909. 

D. E. Mclver, Esq., represented plaintiff; W. B. Rodman, Esq., attorney. 
Southern Railway Company; J. H. Pou, Esq., attorney. Seaboard Air Line Rail- 
way; J. H. Pou, Esq., and Geo. B. Elliott, Esq., attorneys, Atlantic Coast Line 
Railroad Company. 

The evidence offered for plaintiff and defendants was taken by stenographer 
and typewritten copy thereof made and filed in this office. 

It was admitted in the evidence by some of the defendants, and the commission 
finds the fact to be, that the passenger station now used by the defendants at 
Sanford is entirely inadequate for the security, convenience and accommodation 
of the public, and that a larger building with greater seating capacity and with 
toilet rooms and other facilities is a necessity. 

The present station seems to be owned by two of the defendants — the Seaboard 
Air Line Railway and the Southern Railway Company — and is also used by the 
Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company, the other defendant, upon payment of 
rental. 

It is practicable and the necessities of the case, in the judgment of the commis- 
sion, require that defendants, all entering the city bf Sanford, have one common 
or union passenger depot for the security, accommodation and convenience of the 
traveling public; snd 



238 K". C. CORPORATIO^sT COMMISSION. 

It is, therefore, ordered that the defendants unite in the joint undertaking 
and expense of providing and maintaining such union passenger depot commen- 
surate with the business and revenues of said defendants at Sanford; and to that 
end, that defendants file with tliis office plans and specifications for such depot 
within thirty days from the date hereof.

CAEOLINA, CLINCHFIELD AND OHIO RAILWAY v. WILLIAM PETERSON 
AND WIFE, REBECCA PETERSON— PETITON TO CONDEMN GARDEN 
AND PORTION OF YARD. 

RoGEES, Commissioner. 

Petitioner in this proceeding, the Carolina, Clinchfield and Ohio Railway, 
seeks to condemn certain lands, including a garden and portions of a yard, de- 
scribed by metes and bounds, belonging to William Peterson, the defendant. 

Upon petition filed by the plaintiff railroad with the corporation commission, 
alleging that it is necessary to occupy certain land, including an enclosure used 
as a garden, belonging to defendant, for the purpose of maintaining, operating, 
straightening and altering the location of its line, the commission made due 
inquiry, as required by section 2, chapter 458, Laws of 1907, by an investigation 
of the conditions and by finding the facts in respect thereto by taking testimony 
in the proceeding at Bakersville, June 10, 1909, where and at which time the 
plaintiff and defendant were present and were represented by counsel — the 
plaintiff by W. L. Lambert, Esq., and James J. McLaughlin, Esq., and the de- 
fendant by Charles E. Green, Esq. 

Stenographic report of the testimony was taken by the commission's stenogra- 
pher and is filed herewith. 

Evidence to the effect that the land sought to be condemned is necessary to 
the maintenance of its line and the desired improvement, and that the railroad 
company cannot make the desired improvement without condemning the garden 
and yard, as described by metes and bounds in the petition, without excessive 
cost, is not rebutted. 

Therefore, the commission, without expressing an opinion as to the value of 
the land sought to be condemned, finds that the railroad company cannot make 
the desired improvement without condemning the garden and yard, except at an 
excessive cost.

CAROLINA, CLINCHFIELD AND OHIO RAILWAY v. JONAS D. PETERSON 
AND WIFE, MARY PETERSON— PETITION TO CONDEMN GARDEN. 

RoGEES, Commissioner. 

Petitioner in this proceeding, the Carolina, Clinchfield and Ohio Railway, seeks 
to condemn certain lands, including a garden belonging to Jonas D. Peterson, 
the defendant.

as a garden, belonging to defendant, for the purpose of maintaining, operating, 
straightening and altering the location of its line, the commission made due 
inquiry, as required by section 2, chapter 458, Laws of 1907, by an investigation 
of the conditions and by finding the facts in respect thereto by taking testimony 
in the proceeding at Bakersville, June 10, 1909, where and at which time the 
plaintiff and defendant were present and were represented by counsel, the plain- 
tiff by W. L. Lambert, Esq., and James J. McLaughlin, Esq., and the defendant 
by Charles E. Greene, Esq. 

Stenographic report of the testimony was taken by the commission's stenogra- 
pher and is filed herewith. 

Evidence to the effect that the land sought to be condemned is necessary to the 
maintenance of its line and the desired improvement, and that the railroad com- 
pany cannot make the desired improvement without condemning the garden, as 
described in the petition, w^ithout excessive cost, is not rebutted. 

Therefore, the commission, without expressing an opinion as to the value of 
the land sought to be condemned, finds that the railroad company cannot make 
the desired improvement without condemning the garden, except at an excessive 
cost.

CITIZEXS OF MARION et als. v. SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY, CARO- 
LINA, CLINCHFIELD AND OHIO RAILWAY— FACILITIES AT MARION 
JUNCTION. 

Rogers, Commissioner. 

The investigation in this case by the commission is because of sundry petitions 
from citizens and business organizations of many towns located on the lines of 
the defendant roads, namely: Asheville, Lenoir, Hickory, Morganton, Greensboro, 
Statesville, Bakersville, Spruce Pine, et al., asking for facilities for the inter- 
change of passengers at Marion Junction. 

On the 25th day of February, 1909, at Marion, North Carolina, the commission 
heard the petitioners and the defendants above named. General Superintendent 
Loyall represented the Southern Railway Company, and Traveling Passenger 
Agent Mandel represented the Carolina, Clinchfield and Ohio Railway. The 
commission made personal observations and heard testimony in respect to the 
conditions at Marion Junction and as to the necessity for the interchange of 
passengers at that point. 

Marion Jimction is a point two miles east of Marion, a station on the Southern 
Railway, where the Carolina, Clinchfield and Ohio Railway and the Southern 
Railway cross, and at which place the defendant roads have physical connection 
and interchange carload freight. The Carolina, Clinchfield and Ohio Railway 
has a temporary freight and passenger station on its line about one thousand 
feet from the crossing. The Southern Railway Company has no facilities at all 
at this crossing for passengers, nor does it stop any of its passenger trains at 
the crossing. Passengers desiring to transfer from either of the defendant roads 
to points on the other must necessarily travel by private means two miles, the 
distance from Marion Junction to Marion station. 

At the date of the hearing the existing schedule on the defendant roads did 
not allow sufficient time between the principal trains on their respective roads 



240 N. C. COEPOEATION COMMISSIOI^. 

to drive the distance of two miles with assurance of making connection. 
Missed connection and delay were often occurring. 

The Carolina, Clinchfield and Ohio Railwaj'', in connection with the Seaboard 
Air Line Eailway, operates two passenger trains daily between Wilmington, 
North Carolina, and Johnson City, Tennessee, via Marion Junction, and the 
Southern Railway Company operates six passenger trains daily via Marion Junc- 
tion, which make connection with its main and branch lines to all points on its 
system. 

The commission, considering the great demand for the interchange of passen- 
gers and baggage at this point between defendant lines; that the interchange of 
traffic at this junction is now provided; that the defendant roads traverse every 
populated section of the state, and the further fact that the defendant Carolina, 
Clinchfield and Ohio Railway admits the reasonableness of the demand of peti- 
tioners and makes known to the commission its willingness to join with the 
Southern Railway to provide the facilities asked for, is of the opinion that the 
defendants have the power to afford the facilities petitioned for; that they are 
reasonable and proper and are necessary to the forwarding and delivery of 
passengers to and from their respective lines. 

Therefore, it is ordered by the commission that the Carolina, Clinchfield and 
Ohio Railway and the Southern Railway Company, within sixty days from this 
date, provide at Marion Junction proper and adequate facilities for the inter- 
change of passengers and baggage.

CITY OF DURHAM v. NORTH CAROLINA RAILROAD COMPANY, SOUTH- 
ERN RAILWAY COMPANY, SEABOARD AIR LINE RAILWAY. 

This is a proceeding under chapter 199 of Private Laws of 1905, to have the 
corporation commission find the value of property which plaintiff seeks to con- 
demn and to find what will be the necessary clearance, and whether it will be 
necessary to raise or lower defendants' tracks, and to apportion cost of subway 
between plaintiff and defendants. 

.This cause was heard after due notice to all parties. 

R. O. Everett, Esq., attorney for plaintiff; W. B. Rodman, Esq., attorney for 
defendant companies. North Carolina Railroad Company and Southern Railway 
Company; F. L. Fuller, Esq., attorney for Seaboard Air Line Railway. 

All were present. 

The evidence offered was heard and typewritten copy thereof made, and is on 
file in the record in this office. 

Upon consideration thereof, we find that the value of the property sought to 
be condemned is the amount that it w^ould cost ro erect a safe and permanent 
way for defendants' tracks over Alston Avenue, which, in our opinion, is $26,000. 

We further find that there should be a clearance for subway of 46 feet in width 
and 12 feet in height. 

We furtlier find that it will not be necessary to raise defendants' tracks, as the 
proper clearance can be had by excavating two feet deeper than the grade of 
said street under said tracks. 

We further find that the cost of said subway will be $26,000, as follows: $4,500 
for excavation, $1,500 for temporary structures for support of track, and $20,000 



DECISIOIsTS AND COMPLAINTS. 241 

for permanent support of track, consisting of concrete abutments and girders, 
etc.; and that 60 per cent of said cost should be borne by the city of Durham, 
25 per cent by the North Carolina Railroad Company and Southern Railway 
Company, and 15 per cent by the Seaboard Air Line Railway.

CITIZENS OF WATAUGA AND MITCHELL COUNTIES v. VALLE CRUCIS, 
SHAWNEEHAW AND ELK PARK TURNPIKE COMPANY— IN RE TOLLS. 

Rogers, Commissioner. 

This case coming on to be heard at Banners Elk, June 11, 1909, the petitioners 
were represented by their attorney, T. A. Love, and the defendant company by 
its attorney, L. D. Lowe. 

The testimony offered was taken by the commission's stenographer, and type- 
written copies thereof filed herewith as part of the record in this case. 

The defendant corporation was chartered by chapter 221, Private Laws of the 
General Assembly of 1891, for the purpose of constructing a turnpike road from 
Valle Crucis to Elk Park, North Carolina, and by said law is authorized to con- 
demn any lands required for said turnpike either for the roadway or tollhouses, 
or other appurtenances thereto, and to demand and receive tolls (not exceeding 
certain sums), and to erect a tollgate across said turnpike; and said act fur- 
ther provides for certain penalties which may be imposed upon persons using any 
part of said road without paying the tolls due for such use, when regularly 
demanded; and also further directs how the tolls collected shall be expended. 

It appears that defendant company's organization was made and shares of 
stock subscribed and paid in to the amount of $2,620. Interested parties con- 
tributed, by subscription and otherwise, to the construction of the turnpike. 

It appears that practically the maximum tolls authorized have been charged 
for the use of the said road, namely: 

Four-horse wagon 35 cents. 

Two-horse wagon 20 cents. 

One-horse wagon , . 15 cents. 

Two-horse buggy 35 cents. 

One-horse buggy 25 cents. 

Horse and rider 10 cents. 

Horse or cattle 5 cents each. 

Sheep 3 cents each. 

The system for collecting these charges is by two toll gates erected across the 
road, one about 3i/^ and one about 5 miles from Elk Park, each collecting one- 
half the toll above mentioned. 

It further appears that any one using the turnpike a distance of 31/^ miles out 
of Elk Park would pay half as much as one using it 5 miles, and one using the 
road the 5 miles out of Elk Park would pay the same toll as one using it 16 
miles, which is the full length. There is about 12 miles of the turnpike between 
Valle Crucis and the first gate across the road which may be used without the 
payment of the tolls. 

1 16 



242 N. C. COKPOEATION" COMMISSION". 

It appears from the evidence that the company's revenue is derived principally 
from its patrons near Elk Park, and any loss to its revenue is accounted for on 
the twelve miles of its road on which no toll is demanded. 

The principal causes alleged in the complaint in this case seem to be: 

1. The amount of the toll demanded for the use of the road at the Elk Park 
terminus, through two gates, a distance of five miles. 

2. The bad condition of the road or the failure and neglect to keep it in 
repair. 

It appears from the evidence that the turnpike under discussion is the only 
practicable route from Elk Park, near Cranberry, railroad termini and trading 
points in Mitchell county, to Valle Crucis in Watauga county, and the only road 
accessible to the populated sections of the two counties. It is, therefore, a much 
traveled road. 

The annual receipts for the tolls of the company do not appear, although the 
record shows the company was allowed time in which to file statement showing 
them. The evidence is that, for ten years, during the construction period and 
after, no receipts from tolls were given to dividends, but since that time divi- 
dends have been declared, one of 40 per cent; that for twelve months, ending 
March 31, 1909, receipts exceeeded expenditures only about $494 or about 18 per 
cent, and for two months, April and May, 1909, $97 or an average of 20 per cent. 
The evidence shows that the condition of the road is often complained of. 
One or more times an effort to indict it in the court was made, and also a suit 
for damage on account of accident is now pending. 

It further shows that the road is not kept in such repair and in such a class 
as a toll road paying dividends to its stockholders should be; and the commission 
so finds. 

The maximum tolls authorized by the company's charter are, under the circum- 
stances, excessive, and should not be demanded for the use of the road. The 
turnpike company recognizes the equity of the mileage or distance scale of 
charges, and the commission is of the opinion that the tolls allowed for the use 
of the pike should be so adjusted as to be less burdensome on those using only 
the Elk Park terminus. 

The commission, therefore, approves the following tariff of charges or tolls for 
use of defendant company's road, and directs that no other charges exceeding 
same, if collected in the manner as at present, by two gates located as they now 
are, shall be demanded, namely: 

One gate. Second gate. 

Four-horse wagon 15 cents. add 10 cents. 

Two-horse wagon 10 cents. add 5 cents. 

One-horse wagon 5 cents. add 5 cents. 

Two-horse buggy 15 cents. add 10 cents. 

One-horse buggy 10 cents. add 5 cents. 

Horse and rider 5 cents. add 5 cents. 

Cattle 2 cents. add 1 cent. 

Sheep 1 cent. add 1 cent. 

While the question is not now being passed on by the commission, it respect- 
fully calls the attention of the company to section 9 of the act creating said cor- 
poration, which, in the opinion of the commission, seems to direct that the fare 



DECISIOlSrS AND COMPLAINTS. 243 

or toll received from the use of said road shall be expended in keeping the toll- 
house, making and constructing said turnpike and keeping the parts thus made 
in repair before dividends to stockholders are authorized.

SOUTHERN BELL TELEPHONE AND TELEGRAPH COMPANY TO THE 
COMMISSION— EX PARTE— IN RE APPLICATION OF SOUTHERN BELL 
TELEPHONE AND TELEGRAPH COMPANY TO INCREASE RATES IN 
EXCHANGE AT WILMINGTON. 

This is a petition filed by the Southern Bell Telephone and Telegraph Company 
for permission to modify schedule of rates then and now in operation at the 
exchange in Wilmington, North Carolina, so that on and after October 21, 1909, 
the rate for 

, Business service — unlimited duplex line (two stations on line) would be $3.50 
per month instead of $3; and unlimited party line (not exceeding six stations on 
line), $3 per month instead of $2.50; and 

Residence service — unlimited special line would be $2.50 per month instead 
of $2 ; and unlimited duplex line ( two stations on line ) , $2 per month instead 
of $1.50. 

The proceeding was begun May 27, 1909, and notice of the pendency thereof 
was given to the public through the public press of the state immediately and 
that the petition would be heard on June 25, 1909. 

Protests were filed by the chamber of commerce of Wilmington, which were 
withdrawn before the hearing, and later a number of citizens of Wilmington filed 
protest. 

At the hearing petitioners were represented by Messrs. Hunt Chipley and A. B. 
Andrews, Jr., attorneys. There was no representative of the protestants. 

The evidence offered by petitioner was taken by stenographer and typewritten 
copy thereof was made and is on file in this office. 

It appears from this evidence that the rates now in force were put in eff'ect in 
1903, when there were about 800 subscribers to the exchange; now there are 
about 2,000 subscribers to the exchange. 

It further appears that the average investment in exchange construction for 
Wilmington, North Carolina, for the year 1908, was $207,136.68; that the ex- 
change revenue amounted to $50,759.50; and that the expenses of operation 
amounted to $41,743.39 — all of which data is put in the form of table and at- 
tached to the evidence. So that the per cent of profit for the year was 3.851, it 
appears. 

It further appears that the average per cent of profit for the three years, to 
wit: 1906, 1907 and 1908, was 3.054. 

The protests in the view taken by the commission are based on misapprehension 
of the law and the facts. One of the grounds assigned is the profit made by the 
petitioners upon their whole business in and out of the state. In the view taken 
by the commission, the petitioner is entitled to reasonable profit on amount in- 
vested in the exchange service in Wilmington. 

Another ground of protest is that the petitioner made, in 1908, about $36,000 
net profit on an investment of $81,000. From the above statement of facts as 
developed by the evidence, this is a misapprehension, the investment being $207,- 



244 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION". 

136 and the net profit $9,016. Upon the evidence in this case it does not appear 
that the increase in rates petitioned for would yield more than a reasonable in- 
come upon the investment, and it does appear .that the petitioner is entitled to 
more income than he is receiving under the present schedule of rates. 

It is, therefore, ordered that the petition be granted. 

Eeports will be required of petitioner from time to time of the operations of 
said exchange, and rates will be adjusted as the nature and circumstances of the 
case may require, Franklin McNeill, 

August 14, 1909. Chairman. 



ASHEVILLE TELEPHONE AND TELEGRAPH COMPANY TO THE COMMIS- 
SION— IN RE APPLICATION OP INCREASE EXCHANGE RATES— ASHE- 
VILLE. 

Rogers, Commissioner. 

The petitioner in this case asks a revision of and an increase in the telephone 
rates for exchange service in the city of Asheville. 

The petitioner, the Asheville Telephone and Telegraph Company, is a duly 
authorized corporation, doing a telephone business in the city of Asheville, and, 
by virtue of an ordinance of said city, has been allowed to charge for unlimited 
telephone service within said city for a period of five years, from January 1, 
1904, rates not exceeding those set forth therein, namely: 

For business purposes, special line at the rate 

(payable in advance) of $10.00 per quarter, 

or 3.50 per month. 

For residence purposes, special line, at the rate 

(payable in advance) of 6.00 per quarter, 

or 2.15 per month. 

For duplex line for business purposes, at the rate 

(payable in advance) of 9.00 per quarter, 

or 3.15 per month. 

For duplex line for residence purposes, at the rate 

(payable in advance) of 4.50 per quarter, 

or 1.05 per month. 

For 4 party line for business purposes, at the rate 

(payable in advance) of 7.50 per quarter, 

or 2.65 per month. 

For 4 party line for residence purposes, at the rate 

(payable in advance) of 15.00 per annum, 

or 1.50 per month. 

The petitioner alleges that the said rates have not been remunerative, yielding 
less net revenue per annum than one per cent on the value of the property 
employed in furnishing said exchange service. 

The petition in this case was filed May 27, 1909. Notice of the proceeding 
was given immediately through the public press. Notice giving date of hearing 
before the commission appeared in The Asheville Citizen, issue June 17, 1909. 

At the hearing, June 25, 1909, the petitioner was represented by Alfred Bar- 
nard and Hunt Chipley, attorneys. There was no one representing the city of 



DECISIONS AND COMPLAINTS. 245 

Aslieville. Evidence offered by the petitioner was taken by a stenographer and 
typewritten copy thereof made and is filed with other papers in the case. 

It appears from the evidence that the present telephone plant in operation in 
the city of Asheville is practically new, having been reconstructed within the 
last three years, and is one of highest efficiency. The exchange investment in 
this plant represents a value, average, 1908, of $272,072.07. 

It further appears that the total revenue for the year 1908 was $48,814.13; 
total expenses, $46,265.31; net revenue of $2,548.82, or a percentage of net 
profit, .89. 

The evidence further shows that for three years, 1906, 1907 and 1908, the 
result of the operation of the Asheville Telephone and Telegraph Company was 
less than one per cent net revenue. Exhibits containing data to this effect were 
filed as evidence at the hearing, and copies thereof are attached hereto as findings 
of the commission. 

It is also shown by the testimony that if the rates asked for in the petition 
were in effect, assuming that the same number of subscribers and the same class 
of service were retained, the maximum increase in the company's revenue would 
be $8,655.24, and that the result of operation would show less than 4 per cent 
net earnings. Copy of an exhibit filed as evidence in the case to this effect is 
hereto attached. 

It is further shown that the proposed rates are no higher than the rates 
charged by the Southern Bell Telephone and Telegraph Company in other states 
and in North Carolina under similar conditions. 

It does not appear from the evidence in this case that the increase in rates 
petitioned for (a schedule copy is hereto attached) would yield more than a 
reasonable income upon the value of the property employed in the exchange 
service of the Asheville Telephone and Telegraph Company, and it is the opinion 
of the commission that the petitioner is entitled to more income than it is receiv- 
ing under present schedule of rates. 

It is, therefore, ordered that the petition be granted, and that the schedule 
of rates herein filed be and is hereby approved. 

August 20, 1909. 



CITIZENS OF WATAUGA AND MITCHELL COUNTIES v. VALLE CRUCIS, 
SHAWNEEHAW AND ELK PARK TURNPIKE COMPANY— IN RE TOLLS 
—ORDER OVERRULING EXCEPTIONS. 

Rogers, Cotn^nissioner. 

The hearing in the above entitled case was had at Banners Elk, June 11, 1909, 
and the decision of the commission rendered August 4, 1909. A copy of the order 
of the commission was mailed both to the plaintiff's and defendant's attorneys 
August 5, 1909. 

The defendant company filed with the commission, on August 23, 1909, excep- 
tions, which were submitted without argument. 

The exceptions were overruled, and the defendant company appealed to the 
superior court and filed bond in the sum of $1,000, August 27, 1909, which is 
approved by the commission, as provided by section 1078, Revisal of 1905. 

Therefore, it is ordered by the commission, upon defendant company filing bond 
as required in ease of appeal to the superior court, that all the papers and evi-

dence considered by the commission, together with the assignments of errors 
filed with the appellant, be transmitted to the next term of superior court of

CITIZENS OF MARION et. als. v. SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY, CAR- 
OLINA, CLINCHFIELD AND OHIO RAILWAY— FACILITIES AT MARION 
JUNCTION. 

Rogers, Commissioner. 

Pursuant to notice to the petitioner and defendants, the exceptions in this case 
made by the Southern Railway Company were heard the 24th day of August, 
1909. 

Defendant Southern Railway Company was represented by James H. Pou, 
attorney, and E. H. Coapman, general superintendent; J. Norment Powell, 
attorney, and M. J. Caples, vice-president and general manager, represented the 
Carolina, Clinchfield and Ohio Railway. 

Evidence was offered by defendant Southern Railway Company, and the same 
was taken by the commission's stenographer, copy of which is typewritten and 
filed in the record of the case. 

It appears to the commission, in addition to the evidence in the case, that the 
parties defendant have practically agreed between themselves upon the terms on 
which they will provide the facilities prayed for in the petition in this case and 
as ordered by the commission on the original hearing, as is shown by copies of 
telegrams to and from defendants through the office of the commission, namely: 

"Hon. Franklin McNeill, 

Chairman Corporation Commission,

"If the C, C. and 0. Railway will make all necessary improvements at Marion 
Junction for the transfer of passengers and baggage free of cost to the Southern

the passengers and baggage, the Southern Railway will accept the order requiring 
them to stop their passenger trains at Marion Junction on flag signal for pas- 
sengers coming from or going to the C, C. and O. Railway via Marion Junction; 
it being understood that this order is to cover passengers and baggage only.

It is further ordered that the defendant, the Southern Railway Company, pro-

CITIZENS OF SANFORD et als. v. ATLANTIC COAST LINE RAILROAD

This cause coming on for further directions upon defendant filing in this cause 
plans and specifications for union passenger station at Sanford, and exceptions 
being filed to said plans by complainants, after notice to all parties of record, the 
cause was heard on August 23, 1909. 

D. E. Mclver, Esq., attorney, appeared for petitioners; Col. W. B. Rodman, 
counsel, appeared for Southern Railway Company; J. H. Pou, Esq., attorney, 
appeared for Atlantic Coast Line Railroad and Seaboard Air Line Railway. 

Evidence was offered which was typewritten and copy thereof filed in this 
office. 

It appearing to the commission that the Seaboard Air Line Railway contem- 
plates making a change in its tracks at Sanford so that it will cross under the 
Southern Railway or Atlantic Coast Line Railroad track with a grade at San- 
ford, and that plans have been drawn up for that purpose, and that if this is 
done it might be necessary to change the location of the union passenger station; 

And it further appearing to the satisfaction of the commission that a depot 
according to the plans filed would be sufficient for the security, accommodation 
and convenience of the traveling public at least until the Seaboard Air Line 
Railway will have a reasonable time for maturing and perfecting the plans above 
suggested ;

It is ordered by the commission tliat the exceptions to said plans be and they 
are hereby overruled. 

The order heretofore made in this cause does not indicate what material 
should be used in the construction of said union passenger station, nor do we 
do so now; nor do we pass upon the question as to whether defendant will vio- 
late "fire limits law" if they use material of wood in constructing said depot. 
This is a matter for the city government of Sanford. 

We renew our order that the defendants unite in erecting a union passenger 
station adequate to the security, accommodation and convenience of the traveling 
public. Franklin McNeill,

ATLANTIC COAST LINE RAILROAD COMPANY, SEABOARD AIR LINE 
RAILWAY, SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY, NORFOLK AND SOUTH- 
ERN RAILWAY, TO THE COMMISSION— IN RE APPLICATION FOR RE- 
LIEF UNDER CHAPTER 446, LAWS OF 1909, FROM EQUIPPING EN- 
GINES WITH ELECTRIC OR POWER HEADLIGHTS. 

The petitions of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company and Seaboard iVir 
Line Railway were heard, after due notice, on the 24th day of May, 1909. 

Geo. B. Elliott, Esq., appeared and represented Atlantic Coast Line Railroad 
Company; James H. Pou, Esq., appeared and represented Seaboard Air Line 
Railway; D. K. Wright, engineer, appeared and asked to be allowed to represent 
his own interests and that of other engineers, and was allowed to do so. 

The evidence offered was typewritten and copy thereof filed in this office. 

The petition of the Norfolk and Southern Railway was heard on the 22d day 
of June, 1909. W. W. Terry, attorney, appeared and represented petitioner. 

The Southern Railway Company did not offer any evidence, but relied upon the 
evidence of other petitioners so far as same was applicable to its petition. 

These petitions are all considered together, as they all involve the construction 
of the same statute. 

The petition of the Southern Railway Company alleges that more than 25 
per cent of its engines in operation in North Carolina are equipped with electric 
or power headlights, as required by the statute, and that on this account and also 
on account of abnormal depression of business, and the further fact, which they 
allege, that the safety of employees and the public will not be hazarded thereb\', 
they ask to be exempted from equipping any engines until after April 1, 1910, 
and before April 1, 1911. 

The petition of the Seaboard Air Line Railway alleges local trains 3 and 4, 
running between Norlina and Johnston Street Station, are scheduled to run 
wholly in daytime; and that trains from Boykins to Lewiston are on branch 
lines on which few trains are operated, and those that are are operated on day 
schedule; and that trains between Henderson and Durham and between Hen- 
derson, Dickerson and Oxford are on branch lines with few trains and on day 
schedule; and that trains operated between Franklinton and Louisburg are on 
branch lines with light service and daylight schedule; and that trains 1, 2, 3, 
and 4, operated between Raleigh and Aberdeen and Aberdeen and Monroe, are 



DECISIONS AND COMPLAINTS. 241) 

local trains and scheduled for daylight runs; that trains operated between Mon- 
cure and Pittsboro are on branch lines and scheduled for light service and in 
daylight; that trains 5 and G, operated between Hamlet and Columbia, are local 
trains operated on daylight service; that trains operated between Hamlet and 
Wilmington are on a road which is operated as a branch line with light service; 
and that trains operated between Monroe and Rutherfordton, including Ellenboro 
Branch, are on a road which is operated as a branch line and the service is light; 
that trains 5 and 0, operated between Monroe and Chester, are local trains run 
on daylight schedule with light service; and that the exemption of engines of all 
of the above trains from electric or power headlights will not, in petitioner's 
opinion, result in increased hazard to the men operating the trains, or other 
employees, or the traveling public, and will result in saving of petitioner's funds. 

The petition of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company and the Norfolk 
and Southern Railway alleged that electric or power headlights are not necessary 
or advisable on trains operated by them in North Carolina. 

The statute provides that every company, etc., owning or operating a railroad 
is required to equip and maintain and use upon each and every locomotive in 
railroad service on main lines in this state an electric or power headlight, etc.: 
Provided, that only 25 per cent of said locomotives not now so equipped shall be 
required to be so equipped or used by April 1, 1910; another 25 per cent by 
April 1, 1911; another 25 per cent by April 1, 1912, and the remainder by April 
1, 1913: Provided that this act shall not apply to locomotives regularly used in 
switching cars or trains; and further provided that this act shall not apply to 
locomotive engines used exclusively between sunup and sundown, nor going to nor 
returning from repair shops when ordered in for repairs : Provided further, the 
corporation commission may relieve from the operation of this act such locomo- 
tives and roads or parts or sections or branches of road upon which the corpora- 
tion commission may deem electric or power headlights not advisable: Provided 
further, that should an engine start on a trip with headlight in good working 
condition, and from some unavoidable cause such headlight becomes disabled and 
cannot be repaired on the line of the road on which such run is being made, 
there shall be nothing in this act to prevent said engine from continuing on said 
trip, and the railroad shall not be liable for prosecution on account of such 
failure. 

The contention of Southern Railway Company is that over 25 per cent of its 
engines now in operation in North Carolina are equipped with electric or power 
headlights, and, therefore, they should not be required to equip any more of its 
engines until after April 1, 1910, and prior to April 1, 1911; but the statute 
quoted above requires that 25 per cent of engines not noio so equipped, etc. 
This act was passed March 5, 1909, so that the statute will not bear such a con- 
struction or the construction contended for by petitioner. 

The evidence offered on the trial to show the understanding of the parties 
urging the bill or the legislative committee which passed upon it cannot be con- 
sidered so as to change the plain words of the statute. 

The corporation commission is only authorized to relieve from the operation 
of this act such locomotives, etc., upon which the said commission may deem such 
electric or power headlights not advisable. 

Upon consideration of the petitions and the evidence, the commission is unable 
to grant the relief prayed for in the foregoing petitions, and. 

Therefore, it is ordered that they and each of them be dismissed. 



250 N. C. CORPOEATION COMMISSION. 

The commission deems it proper to say that a number of the locomotives re- 
ferred to in the petitions are exempted from the operation of the law by the act 
itself. We only decide that, in our judgment, we ought not to prevent the oper- 
ation of this law under the power conferred on us by this act.

CITIZENS OF SANFORD et als. v. ATLANTIC COAST LINE RAILROAD, 
SEABOARD AIR LINE RAILWAY, AND SOUTHERN RAILWAY COM- 
PANY—IN RE SANFORD DEPOT— DISSENTING OPINION OF B. F. AY- 
COCK, COMMISSIONER. 

A sense of justice to the traveling public, citizens of Sanford and the railroad 
companies, compelled me to dissent from the order of the commission in over- 
ruling the petition of the citizens of Sanford. 

There are three railroads using one depot at Sanford, to wit: Seaboard Air 
Line Railway, Atlantic Coast Line Railroad, and Southern Railway Company. 
The people of Sanford already have a union depot. They complain that the 
depot is not sufficient in size and has not the convenience necessary to accom- 
modate the traveling public and that the construction and appearance of same 
is not in keeping with the size and importance of the town. 

Mr. J. M. Shea, superintendent of the division of the Seaboard Air Line Railway 
on which Sanford is located, in his sworn testimony, says that the present depot 
"is not large enough ; that the waiting rooms are not large enough ; that the 
baggage room is not large enough; it needs toilet arrangements put in. The 
station is badly kept; it has not received proper attention. We should have a 
seating capacity in each waiting room for at least thirty passengers." 

The evidence of the different witnesses before the commission shows conclu- 
sively that the present station is inadequate to meet the needs of the town. 

The statement was made to the commission, however, that the Seaboard Air 
Line Railway (which is in the hands of a receiver) had plans on foot, when 
reorganized, to lower the grade of its roadbed at Sanford, and, if lowered, it 
might be that a new depot would be necessary and, therefore, the commission 
was urged not to require the construction of a union station at this time. This 
suggestion — and it appears to be merely a suggestion without any tangible basis 
to support it — appears to have been seriously considered by the commission. 

"It further appearing to the satisfaction of the commission that a depot accord- 
ing to the plans filed would be sufficient for the security, accommodation and 
convenience of the traveling public, at least until the Seaboard Air Line Railway 
will have a reasonable time for maturing and perfecting the plans above sug- 
gested." 

The plans filed provide for additions to the present depot; additions constructed 
of wood. That these plans are by no means satisfactory to the people of San- 
ford the following statement from the citizens of that town, filed by their attor- 
ney, abundantly show. 

If the building is "enlarged as suggested in the plans, it would have the appear- 
ance of a cow shed and would be a reflection upon the three great systems repre- 
sented in its construction, and would remain, as it now is, a disgrace to the 
town." 



DECISIONS AND COMPLAINTS. 251 

It was clearly shown by the testimony before the commission that the depot 
is within the fire limits of the town of Sanford, and that the building of the 
additions to the present depot in accordance with the plans approved by the 
commission would be in violation of law. In other words, the effect of the order 
of the commission is to command the three railway companies to violate a valid 
ordinance of the town of Sanford. The result would probably be that they would 
not be permitted to violate the ordinance, the whole question would be thrown 
into the courts, and the traveling public at Sanford required to indefinitely 
suffer the inconvenience of the present inadequate depot facilities. 

The receipts at Sanford for passenger fares of the three railroads, according 
to the evidence offered before the commission, amount to about thirty-six thou- 
sand dollars per year, besides the large receipts from freight. 

It was admitted on the hearing that if the suggested plan of lowering the 
grade was carried out, that the depot of the Seaboard Air Line Railway would 
probably be moved a quarter of a mile from the present location and the travel- 
ing public would then lose the benefit of a union station. 

In my judgment, an order should be made requiring the construction of a 
union depot, to be of brick or stone, and to cost not less than five thousand nor 
more than eight thousand dollars. The receipts of these three railroads at San- 
ford, in my judgment, justify the expenditure and the needs of the traveling 
public demand this consideration. 

For these reasons I dissent from the order of the commission herein rendered. 

B. F. Aycock, 

August 31, 1909. Commissioner. 



IN RE ASSESSMENT OF MORRISON PRODUCE AND PROVISION 

COMPANY. 

This cause coming on to be heard upon exceptions of Morrison Produce and 
Provision Company, the following are the facts: 

Morrison Produce and Provision Company, a corporation organized under and 
by virtue of the laws of North Carolina, and doing business and having its prin- 
cipal office in the city of Statesville, made a report to the corporation commission 
for assessment and taxation under section 34 of the Machinery Act, 1909. 

The appraisal of the capital stock of said corporation by its secretary in said 
report is as follows: 

"Cash value of capital stock on 1st day of June, 1909; cash value after leaving 
out stock invested in other corporations, $2,500." 

"Assessed value of all real and personal property on which corporation pays 
taxes, $2,500." 

"Value of capital stock less assessed value of all real and personal estate, 
nothing." 

The corporation commission was not satisfied with the appraisal and valuation 
so made and returned, as it appeared from said report that the amount of capital 
stock paid into said corporation was $10,000 and that $7,500 of this was in- 
vested in stock in other corporations and that the corporation owned personal 
property which was assessed at $2,500; and, as they were authorized and em- 
powered to do, made a valuation thereof based upon the facts contained in said 
report, and settled an account on the valuation so made for taxation and 
immediately gave notice thereof to said corporation. 



252 N. C. COEPOEATION COMMISSIOI^. 

The corporation commission assessed the capital stock at $7,000 and deducted 
therefrom $2,500, the assessed value of real and personal property, and found 
a corporate excess of $4,500. 

The said corporation was dissatisfied with the settlement so made against it 
and within twenty days after notice of such settlement filed with the corporation 
commission exceptions with the particulars to which it excepted and the ground 
thereof. 

1st. "For that the corporation commission appraised the capital stock of the 
Morrison Produce and Provision Company for the purposes of taxation at 
$7,000." 

This is overruled for the reason that the appraisal of the capital stock is not 
excessive. Ten thousand dollars was paid into this corporation on its capital 
stock. 

2d. "For that the corporation commission charged against the said Morrison 
Produce and Provision Company the sum of $4,500 corporate excess." 

This exception is overruled. The capital stock being valued at $7,000 and the 
assessed value of real and personal estate being $2,500, the corporate excess is 
found by deducting this latter item from the appraised value capital stock. 

The facts and reason assigned to sustain foregoing exceptions are as follows: 

1st. "The capital stock of said corporation amounts to $10,000, but said capital 
stock is invested in the following manner, to wit: 

Stock in other corporations $7,600.00 

Balance 2,400.00 

Total $10,000.00 

2d. "The Morrison Produce and Provision Company is advised and believes 
that the $7,600 of its capital stock invested in other corporations should not be 
taxed. This is done when is charged the corporate excess. The said corporation 
is advised and believes that this corporate excess is in violation of the statute 
laws of North Carolina by reason of the fact that section 4 of schedule A of the 
Revenue x\ct uses the following language: 'Nor shall corporations legally holding 
capital stock in other corporations upon which the tax has been paid by the 
corporation issuing the same be required to pay any tax on said stock or list 
the same.' 

3d. "That none of the stock held by the Morrison Produce and Provision Com- 
pany is used for the purpose of obtaining money with which to conduct the 
business of said corporation. 

4th. "That the said Morrison Produce and Provision Company returned for 
taxes the following property, to wit: 

Personal property $2,500.00." 

The corporations in which the Morrison Produce and Commission Company 
hold these shares of stock were created and organized and are doing business 
under the laws of North Carolina. 

The authority for assessing this corporation was conferred upon the corpora- 
tion commission by section 34 of the Machinery Act, 1909. In order to enable 
them to make this assessment, the corporation is required to make a report to 
them on or before the 1st day of July of each year, giving certain facts "and in 
this report one of the following named officers of such corporation, etc., presi- 



DECISIONS AXD COMPLAINTS. 253 

dent, secretary, etc., after being duly sworn or affirmed to do and perform the 
same with fidelity to the best of his knowledge and belief, shall estimate and 
appraise the capital stock of said company at its actual value in cash on the 
first day of June, after deducting therefrom the assessed value of all real and 
personal estate upon which the corporation pays taxes, as indicated or measured 
by the amoiint of profit made, either declared in dividends or carried into sur- 
plus or sinking fund, etc." 

In assessing this corporation the corporation commission did not understand 
that they were authorized to deduct anything from the value of the capital stock 
except the assessed value of real and personal estate upon which the corporation 
pays taxes. 

If there is any conflict between section 34 of the machinery act and section 4 
of the revenue act, the corporation commission cannot correct it. 

There is no evidence that the corporations issuing the shares capital stock 
held by Morrison Produce and Provision Company paid taxes on the shares of 
stock so held. 

The exceptions are overruled and the assessment is hereby affirmed.

September 6, 1909. Chairman. 



IX RE J. K. MOPvEISOX & SOXS COMPAXY. 

This cause coming on to be heard upon exceptions of J. K. Morrison & Sons 
Company, the following are the facts: 

J. K. Morrison & Sons Company, a corporation organized under and by virtue 
of the laws of Xorth Carolina, and doing business and having its principal office 
in the city of Statesville, made a report to the corporation commission for assess- 
ment and taxation under section 34 of the machinery act of 1909. 

The appraisal of capital stock of said corporation by its secretary in said 
report is as follows: 

'•'Cash value of capital stock on the 1st day of June, 1909: cash value, leaving 
out difference between assessed value of real estate and cost, as well as stock in 
other corporations, $34,600." 

"Assessed value of all real estate and personal property on which corporation 
pays taxes, $34,600." 

The corporation commission was not satisfied with the appraisal and valuation 
so made and returned, as it appeared from said report that the amount of cap- 
ital stock paid into said corporation was $50,000 in cash and that the amount 
of dividend declared ending with 1st day of June, 1909, during the year, was 
$12,000, and, as they were authorized and empowered to do, made a valuation 
thereof based upon the facts contained in said report and settled on valuation 
so made for taxation and immediately gave notice thereof to said corporation. 

The corporation commission assessed the capital stock at $50,000 and deducted 
therefrom $34,600, the assessed value of real and personal property, and found 
a corporate excess of $15,400. 

The said corporation was dissatisfied with the settlement so made against it, 
and within twenty days after notice of 'such settlement filed with the corporation 
commission exceptions with the particulars to which it excepted and the ground 
thereof. 



254 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

1. "For that the corporation commission appraised the capital stock of J. K. 
Morrison & Sons Company for the purposes of taxation at $50,000." 

This is overruled for the reason that the appraisal of the capital stock of this 
corporation is not excessive. Fifty thousand dollars was paid in and upon this 
amount a dividend of $12,000 was declared January 1, 1909, for the year ending 
June 1, 1909. 

2. "For that the corporation commission charged against the J. K. Morrison 
Sons Company the sum of $15,400 corporate excess." 

This exception is overruled. The capital stock being valued at $50,000 and 
the assessed value of the real and personal estate being $36,400, the corporate 
excess is found by deducting this last item from the capital stock. 

The facts and reason assigned to sustain foregoing exceptions are as follows: 

1. "It is true that the capital stock of said corporation amounts to $50,000, 
but said capital stock is invested in the following manner, to wit: 

Real estate $12,590.00 

Stock in other corporations 10,350.00 

Balance 27,060.00 

Total $50,000.00 

2. "That the real estate of said corporation cost said J. K. Morrison & Sons 
Company the sum of $12,590, as set out above, and is carried on the books of 
the company for that sum, but the tax assessors appointed by law for the pur- 
pose of placing valuations on real estate for the purposes of taxation valued said 
real estate in the sum of $5,650 and reported said valuation, as required by law, 
to the board of county commissioners of Iredell county, which said valuation was 
accepted by said board as a proper valuation of said property for the purposes 
of taxation, and said valuation was duly entered on the books of Iredell county. 

3. "That said corporation does not feel that it should be compelled to pay 
taxes upon the difference in the valuation placed upon the said real estate by 
the assessors and the cost of same. This is done when the corporation is 
charged with corporate excess to that amount. This compels said corporation 
to pay taxes at a great deal higher rate than does an individual owning the 
same property. The said J. K. Morrison & Sons Company is advised and believes 
that the charge against it of said corporate excess is unjust, inequitable, uncon- 
stitutional and invalid." 

These facts and reason do not convince the commission that an error was made 
by them in this appraisal. It may be that the corporation paid more for its 
real estate than it is worth. 

The corporation commission does not pass upon the value of the different prop- 
erties in which the capital stock is invested, but taking the earnings to be 
$12,000, as reported, they are of the opinion that the capital stock, as a whole, 
is worth $50,000. 

The further facts and reasons assigned are as follows: 

4. "That the $10,350 held by the J. K. Morrison & Sons Company should not 
be taxed by means of charging said corporation with corporate excess to that 
amount. That said J. K. Morrison & Sons Company is advised and believes that 
this is true by reason of the fact that section 4 of the revenue act (schedule A) 
of the legislature of 1909, uses the following language: 'Nor shall corporations 
legally holding stock in other corporations, upon which the taxes have been paid 



DECISIONS AND COMPLAINTS. 255 

by the corporation issuing the same, be required to pay any tax on said stock 
or list the same. 

5. "That none of the stock held by J. K. Morrison & Sons Company in the 
other corporations is used for the purpose of obtaining money with which to 
conduct its business. 

6. "That the said corporation returned for taxes the following property, to wit: 

Real estate $5,050.00 

Personal property 28,950.00 

Total $34,600.00.". 

The corporations in which J. K. Morrison & Sons Company hold these shares 
of stock were created and organized and are doing business under the laws of 
North Carolina. 

The authority for assessing this corporation was conferred upon the corporation 
commission by section 34, machinery act of 1909. 

In order to enable them to make this assessment, the corporation is required 
to make a report to them on or before the first day of July of each year, giving 
certain facts, "and in this report one of the following named officers of such 
corporations, etc., president, secretary, etc., after being duly sworn, or affirmed, 
to do and perform the same with fidelity to the best of his knowledge and belief, 
shall estimate and appraise the capital stock of said company at its actual value 
in cash on the first day of June, after deducting therefrom the assessed value of 
all real and personal estate upon which the corporation pays taxes, as indicated 
or measured by the amount of profit made, either declared in dividends or car- 
ried into surplus or sinking fund, etc." 

In assessing this corporation the corporation commission did not understand 
that they were authorized to deduct anything from the value of the capital stock 
except "the assessed value of the real and personal estate upon which the corpo- 
ration pays taxes." 

If there is any conflict between section 34 of the machinery act and section 
4 of the revenue act, the corporation commission cannot correct it. 

There is no evidence that the corporations issuing the shares of stock held by 
J. K. Morrison & Sons Company paid taxes on the shares of stock so held. 

The exceptions are overruled and the assessment is hereby affirmed.

CITIZENS OF WELDON v. ATLANTIC COAST LINE RAILROAD COMPANY 
AND SEABOARD AIR LINE RAILWAY— IN RE UNION PASSENGER 
STATION. 

Rogers, Commissioner. 

This cause coming on to be heard before the commission at Raleigh on the 21st 
day of September, 1909, the plaintiffs were represented by their attorneys, W. E. 
Daniel, Esq., and George D. Green, Esq., and the defendant Atlantic Coast Line 
Railroad Company by its attorney, George Elliott, Esq., and W. H. Newell, gen- 
eral superintendent; and the defendant Seaboard Air Line Railway by its attor- 
ney, Murray Allen, Esq., and J. H. Whitt, superintendent. 



256 N. C. COEPORATION" COMMISSION. 

The evidence of both plaintiffs and defendants was taken by the commission's 
stenographer and typewritten, copies of which are filed with the record in the 
case. 

It appears to the commission, from the evidence, that the defendants have 
separate waiting rooms and maintain separate agencies at Weldon, but upon 
adjoining lots and in buildings which their passengers use in common for their 
convenience and comfort. 

That the defendant's. Seaboard Air Line Railway, station is a one-story brick 
structure with two apartments, the size of each being 13 by 18 feet, with a 
seating capacity for eighteen people in either apartment, and are not provided 
with the usual conveniences for the privacy and accommodation of the traveling 
public. 

It also appears from the evidence that the defendant Seaboard Air Line Rail- 
way, in receiving and delivering passengers at this station, has to back its trains 
into or out from it, to the danger and confusion of the public. That the revenue, 
in tickets sold at this station by the defendant Seaboard Air Line Railway, is 
from $1,500 to $1,800 per month. 

As to the defendant Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company, the evidence shows 
that its station at Weldon is a portion of an hotel building, with apartments for 
white and colored passengers, with a seating capacity of twelve and seventeen 
persons, respectively. 

That there are toilet arrangements for females only, and that the arrange- 
ments of the apartments are such as to make the ventilation objectionable and 
the lights poor. 

It also appears from the evidence that the daily average of passengers hauled 
by the defendant Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company out, as shown by 
tickets sold, was 81, and that the passenger revenue for tickets sold for a period 
of one year was $21,815.83. That the defendants operate through WeldOn daily 
fourteen passenger trains, and that it is an important transfer point. 

That the arrangement for the transfer of baggage between the defendant roads 
is uncertain and unsatisfactory. 

The evidence shows that the town of Weldon is an important industrial and 
commercial point and has a population of 1,800 to 3,000. 

The commission made a personal investigation of the conditions at Weldon on 
the 27th instant and have since reviewed the evidence in the case. 

It is the opinion of the commission that the defendant railroad companies have 
not separate depots v/hich are adequate and convenient and offer suitable accom- 
modation for the traveling public. That a union passenger station at Weldon for 
the defendant roads is practicable, and that the necessities of the case require 
them to have one common or union passenger station for the security, accommo- 
dation and convenience of the traveling public. 

Therefore, the commission hereby orders the defendants, Atlantic Coast Line 
Railroad Company and Seaboard Air Line Railway, to unite in the joint under- 
taking and expense of erecting, constructing and maintaining such union passen- 
ger depot, commensurate with the business and revenue of such railroad com- 
panies. 

It is further ordered that plans and specifications for such building and site be 
submitted to the commission within thirty days from this date for its inspection 
and approval. 

This cause is retained for further orders. 

September 29, 1909. 



DECISIONS AND COMPLAINTS. 257 

CITY OF DURHAM v. NORTH CAROLINA RAILROAD COMPANY, SOUTH- 
ERN RAILWAY COMPANY, AND SEABOARD AIR LINE RAILWAY. 

This cause coming on to be heard on exceptions by plaintiff to the findings 
heretofore made in this case, the plaintiff being represented by R. 0, Everett and 
H. A. Foushee, attorneys; the North Carolina Railroad Company and Southern 
Railway Company by W. B. Rodman, Esq.; and the Seaboard Air Line Railway 
by F. L. Fuller, Esq.: 

Upon consideration of argument of counsel, it is ordered that exception 1 be 
overruled. 

The act under which this proceeding is brought, chapter 199, Private Laws of 
1905, provides: 

"Section 1. That the city of Durham is hereby authorized and empowered to 
extend Gregson Street, Carr Street, and Alston Avenue, public highways, under 
the railroad tracks crossing said streets or the extensions of said streets, and 
to cross the right of way of any railroad company owning the same at said cross- 
ing or any extension of said streets across said right of Avay.*' 

This statute seems to contemplate that the street shall be opened by the city 
of Durham. The corporation commission is not empowered to limit the time 
within which the work shall be done by the city, and no power is conferred 
upon the corporation commission to require defendants to extend said street or 
to construct an underpass thereat. 

Exception 2 is overruled. No evidence was offered in this case except by 
plaintiff. The testimony tended to show that if the subway was made for Alston 
Avenue, as proposed, in order to substitute over support for defendants' tracks 
it would cost $26,000, and the corporation commission is of opinion that the 
value of this property to defendant is the cost of a permanent substitute. It 
was further in evidence that a wooden structure is not advisable and would only 
be temporary and liable to accident, and that it ought to be made of concrete with 
steel girders, and that the cost of structure would be $26,000; and petitioner 
prayed that the abutments be constructed out of concrete with steel girders. 

Exception 3 is overruled. The plaintiff alleges in his petition, article 11, that 
an opening of 12 feet in the clearance and 46 feet between the abutments would 
be necessary to make an underpass at said crossing, and prayed for a finding 
to that effect. 

Exception 4 is overruled. Mr. White, city engineer and witness for plaintiff, 
testified that Alston Avenue could be made 3 or 4 feet lower under the railroad 
track than was proposed, and drained. There was no evidence that it was prac- 
ticable to raise the railroad. tracks or what cost would be incurred in doing it. 
The evidence shows that there are five tracks at this point occupied by defendants. 

Exception 5 is overruled. 

It is, therefore, ordered that all the exceptions of the defendant be and they 
are hereby overruled. Franklin McNeill, 

October 2, 1909. Chairman.

258 K. C. COHPORATIOW" COMMISSIOIs^. 

CITY OF DURHAM v. NORTH CAROLINA RAILROAD COMPANY, SOUTH- 
ERN RAILWAY COMPANY, SEABOARD AIR LINE RAILWAYS 

This is a motion by the city of Durham to certify the record on appeal to the 
superior court for trial. 

R. 0. Everett, Esq., appeared for complainant, and suggested that the record 
be sent to the superior court of Durham county. 

J. H. Pou, Esq., attorney for Southern Railway Company, and F. L. Fuller, 
Esq., attorney for Seaboard Air Line Railway, resisted the motion to certify the 
case to Durham county, but stated that they did not object to any other county 
in the state. 

Upon consideration of the matter, it ajDpearing that the city of Durham has 
complied with the terms of the statute, it is ordered that all the papers and 
evidence considered by the corporation commission, together with the assignment 
of errors filed by appellant, be transmitted to the superior court of- Wake county 
for trial. 

The appellate court's attention is called to the fact that by directions of the 
statute this cause is entitled in the appellate court "the state upon relation of 
corporation commission against city of Durham," though corporation commission 
has no interest in the matter. The city of Durham and the North Carolina Rail- 
road Company, the Southern Railway Company and the Seaboard Air Line Rail- 
way are interested in the questions presented by appeal in this case.

CITIZENS OF STATES VILLE v. SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY— PAS- 
SENGER DEPOT. 
Rogers, Conunissioner. 

The petition filed in this case by the committees representing the Manufactu- 
rers' Association, the Commercial Club, the United Commercial Travelers, the 
Retail Merchants' Association, and the Board of Aldermen of the city of States- 
ville, asks for a new passenger station at Statesville. 

After the usual notice to all parties of the proceeding, October 5, 1909, was the 
day on which the hearing of the matter was fixed, at Statesville. 

The plaintiffs and defendant appeared before the commission at the time and 
place so fixed, the plaintiffs appearing through H. P. Greer, Dorman Thompson, 
and Turner & Armfield, attorneys at law; and defendant company by its gen- 
eral superintendent, G. R. Loyall. 

The only testimony offered was by plaintiffs, which was taken by the commis- 
sion's stenographer, typewritten, and copies thereof filed with the other papers 
in the case. 

It appears from the evidence that Statesville is a town with 5,000 or more 
population, of commercial and manufacturing importance; it shows that for the 
months September, 1908, to September, 1909, inclusive, the revenue from freight 
and passengers received by the defendant company at Statesville amounted to 
$397,703.06; that the passenger revenue for tickets sold for the same period was

siring to transfer from one road to the other necessarily use the passenger 
station there. The evidence is and the trains' schedules show that passengers 
wait from thirty minutes to one and a half hours at this point. There are ten 
passenger trains daily passing this junction. 

The station building is a wooden structure with rooms for white and colored 
passengers, each roam with a seating capacity for fifty-two to fifty-five persons. 
It is without any outside projections or shelter, has no toilet conveniences, and 
the evidence shows that the city sewerage is a considerable distance from the 
station; but, while that is true and the cost of extending it to the station approx- 
imates $1,000, the city will make the extension at any time the railroad company 
builds a satisfactory depot. 

It also appears that on many occasions more than twice as many persons were 
taking the trains at this station as was seating room for them in the building. 

The evidence shows that the manner in which the express and baggage are 
handled, and the arrangements of the tracks in the depot yard inconvenience and 
subject to danger the passengers received and delivered at this point. 

The testimony of N. B. Mills, W. A. Thompson, W. L. Gilbert and E. G. Gilmer, 
business men of the town of Statesville, is that they are perfectly familiar with 
the conditions about the station there and that the accommodations for the 
public furnished by the defendant company at Statesville are totally inadequate. 
Their evidence is in no way denied. 

The commission personally made inspection of the conditions at Statesville. 

After careful consideration of the evidence and the conditions as they appear, 
the commission is of the opinion that the accommodations asked for in the peti- 
tion should be granted; that the public necessity demands it, and the revenues 
received by the defendant company at Statesville justify it. 

. Therefore, it is hereby ordered by the commission that the Southern Railway 
erect a passenger depot at Statesville, North Carolina, with accommodations com- 
mensurate with the business and the revenue at that place. 

It is further ordered that the plans and specifications be submitted to the com- 
mission for its inspection within sixty days from this date: Provided, however, 
that before approval of the plans so ordered, it shall appear to the commission 
that the city of Statesville has extended its sewer line so that the toilets which 
the defendant companies will be expected to provide in said station can be con- 
nected therewith.

CITIZENS OF LIBERTY, SILER CITY AND OTHERS v. SOUTHERN RAIL- 
WAY COMPANY— PASSENGER SERVICE. 

This cause coming on to be heard on petition and answer, after conferences 
with the defendant and after personal investigation by the commission, the fol- 
lowing facts are found: 

Complaint was filed in this case alleging necessity for additional passenger 
facilities on the A. and Y. Railroad betw^een Sanford and Greensboro. The alle- 
gation is that there should be daily passenger service in the morning from San- 
ford to Greensboro and in the afternoon from Greensboro to Sanford. The dis- 
tance from Sanford to Greensboro is 61 miles, with 13 stations inclusive. 

Substantially the same complaint was made to this commission in the year 
1906, and defendant alleged that this deficiency could be remedied by attaching 



260 N. C. CORPOEATION COMMISSIOJS^. 

passenger coach to through freight trains which would leave Sanford in the 
morning at 6:00 o'clock and arrive at Greensboro at 10:00 o'clock, and return- 
ing leave Greensboro at 2:00 o'clock in the afternoon; and defendant promised 
the commission that such service would be installed. The corporation commis- 
sion is informed that this passenger coach was attached to the through train and 
for a time improved tiie passenger facilities, but being a through freight train 
rather than a passenger train, in course of time, when there was no train load 
of carload freight, the schedule for this train would be annulled, and so it became 
uncertain. 

Another objection was that the actual time of leaving Greensboro became more 
and more uncertain. While scheduled to leave at 2:00 o'clock P. M., it was fre- 
quently two or more hours later; and finally this passenger service was discon- 
tinued entirely, not on account of lack of passenger patronage, but because it was 
a freight train, so that now there is practically but one passenger service daily 
each way between Sanford and Greensboro, and this is by means of through train 
from Mount Airy to Wilmington and Wilmington to Mount Airy, This through 
passenger service has existed, with the exception of a few months, ever since the 
C, F. and Y, V. Railway was constructed. 

The present schedule provides that train No, 130 shall leave Greensboro at 
12:50 P. M, daily and arrive at Sanford at 3:30 P. M. ; and train No. 131 shall 
leave Sanford at 2:18 P, M. and arrive at Greensboro at 4:45 P. M. These 
trains are well patronized between Greensboro and Sanford, the coaches being 
usually well filled and frequently crowded. It is necessary, for the convenience 
of the traveling public, that these trains be maintained and operated as through 
trains between Wilmington and Mount Airy. 

There is also a mixed train operated between Greensboro and Ramseur, mainly 
for the convenience of Ramseur, which incidentally serves that portion of the road 
between Greensboro and Climax. The distance between Greensboro and Climax 
is 13 miles. This train' is also a necessity. 

In answer to complaint, defendant proposed to add passenger coaches to local 
freight train, with schedule to leave Sanford at 6:00 A. M. and arrive at Greens- 
boro at 10:00 A. M., and returning leave Greensboro at 2:00 P. M. and arrive at 
Sanford at 8:00 P. M. The corporation .commission is of the opinion that the 
time called for in this schedule is too long. The schedule of passenger trains be- 
tween Sanford and Greensboro is about two and a half hours — to be accurate, 
one is 2 hours and 27 minutes and the other 2 hours and 40 minutes, and this, 
we are informed, is usually kept. 

The corporation commission is of the opinion that the schedule ought not to 
be longer than three or three and a half hours. 

The corporation commission is further of the opinion that the schedule ought 
to require the arrival at Greensboro at or before 9:25 A. M. instead of 10:00' 
A. M., so as to connect at Greensboro with trains leaving Greensboro at and 
after that hour, especially with train No. 144, which leaves Greensboro at 9:30 
A. M. for Goldsboro, which would furnish connection for the traveling public 
from points between Sanford and Greensboro to all Southern Railway points, as 
well as connections at Durham, Raleigh, Selma and Goldsboro; and that the 
schedule ought further to require that this train should not leave Greensboro, 
returning to Sanford, earlier than 3:20 P. M., so as to furnish transportation 
to points on this road for passengers arriving at and before that hour. 



DECISIONS AND COMPLAINTS. 261 

It is, therefore, ordered that Southern Railway furnish passenger service be- 
tween Sanford and Greensboro and Greensboro and Sanford daily on schedule for 
the run not to exceed three and a half hours, and arrive at Greensboro by or be- 
fore 9:15 A. M,, so as to connect with trains leaving Greensboro after that hour, 
and returning leave Greensboro not earlier than 3:20 P. M., so as to accommodate 
passengers arriving on trains before that hour; and to that end that they make 
a passenger schedule and report same to this commission within fifteen days from 
the date hereof. Franklin McNeill,

N. W. HATCH V. SEABOARD AIR LINE RAILWAY— FREIGHT SIDING 

FACILITIES. . 
Aycock, Commissioner. 

It appearing to the corporation commission, from petition of N. W. Hatch, 
that Millbrook is a small passenger and freight station 6.6 miles north of 
Raleigh on the Seaboard Air Line Railway. 

There is at this point a small combination freight and passenger depot, ample 
for the accommodation of passengers and for such freight as is ordinarily moved 
through a warehouse, but under present conditions practically no accommodation 
for shipment or delivery of carload freight. 

The Seaboard Air Line Railway has, at this point, four tracks — the main line, 
a pass track on both the east and west side of said main line, and a short spur 
track running alongside of the depot, for the shipment and delivery of freight 
moving through the depot. The spur track continues far enough north of the 
depot to take three cars at a time, two of which extend beyond the depot, A 
public highway crosses these tracks on the south side of the depot at right 
angles. South of this highway the railway enters a cut, which makes it impos- 
sible to load or unload cars south of the depot. North of the depot is also a 
small cut, but the land only rises to about the height of a car door. At this 
point, at the north end of the spur, the railway has provided a landing where 
one car at a time can be loaded or unloaded. This point has been used by ship- 
pers for that purpose many years. On or about the 27th oi September free 
access to this spur track was prevented by a wire fence built by private parties, 
giving great inconvenience for the loading and unloading of cars at the only 
place that car service could be given to the general public, making it impossible 
to drive a two-horse team up to the cars, there being only a. space of about eight 
feet. The only possible way now to reach it is with a one-horse wagon, then 
take out and push back the empty wagon. 

With these facts before it, the commission orders that all obstructions be 
cleared away for at least twenty -five or thirty feet, so as to give free access to the 
depot and sidings necessary for the loading and unloading of freight cars.

262 I^. C. CORPOEATIO^ COMMISSION. 

CITIZENS OF CANTON v. SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY— IN RE 
BRIDGE AT RAILROAD CROSSING. 

This case was heard at Canton on the 6th of October, 1909, for convenience of 
the parties. 

Plaintiff was represented by the mayor, John M. Curtis, and by the board of 
aldermen, J. H. Mease, H. D. Secrest, and E. V. Hampton; defendant was repre- 
sented by the general superintendent, G. R. Loyall, engineer of maintenance of 
way, T. H. Gatlin, and superintendent, T. S. Boswell, 

Evidence was taken by stenographer and typewritten, and a copy of same is 
filed in the record in this office. 

Petition alleges in substance that defendant company maintains a line of rail- 
way tracks in the town of Canton, crossing the public highway of said, town 
near its passenger station, and that at said crossing trains and locomotives are 
constantly crossing and moving back\\ards and forw^ards at frequent intervals, 
and that said tracks are constantly in use by said trains and locomotives, both 
for freight and passenger trains and also for switching and moving freight cars; 
that said crossing is dangerous, and that the persons using it are in constant 
jeopardy of their lives ; and that the said town is thickly populated on both sides 
of said railroad crossing, and that in going to and from places of business in 
said town it is necessary to cross at said crossing; and that there is an adequate 
place at said crossing for the construction of an overhead bridge, which could 
be constructed at a reasonable cost, and that said overhead bridge would minimize 
the danger incident to said crossing; and prays for an order directing defendant 
to construct an overhead bridge, etc. 

Defendant admits that its tracks cross the highway at grade, as alleged, and 
that it is a dangerous crossing, but denies that it is practicable to construct an 
overhead bridge at said crossing. Defendant further says that it is practicable 
to construct an overhead bridge at a point east of said crossing, but there is no 
street to this point (the point and line of street being indicated by a blue print 
filed with the commission ) . 

Defendant further says that it proposed to plaintiff that, if they would abolish 
the present grade crossing and condemn the land for a street to defendant's right 
of way, defendant would construct an overhead bridge and grade the street and 
approaches to said bridge, the point being indicated as above. That at first 
plaintifi^ agreed to this proposition, and defendant began to collect material for 
the work, but, upon plaintiff refusing to abolish the grade crossing, the prepara- 
tion was discontinued. 

It w^as alleged and admitted, and the evidence establishes beyond doubt, that 
the crossing is a dangerous one; it is the throat of a yard at which a large 
amount of carload freight is delivered, and the business at this place is growing 
so that instead of the danger becoming less in the future it will become greater. 

As alleged in the petition, this is the only crossing in the town of Canton, a 
town of 2,500 to 3,000 inhabitants, with about half of its population located on 
either side of the railroad track. The passenger and freight depot is south of 
the railroad, so that all persons on the north have to cross it for their freights 
and to take passage on the trains. It is estimated that 500 school children who 
live on the south side have to cross and recross it daily to reach the school 
building, which is on the north side. 

It was conceded that it is impracticable to construct an overhead bridge at the 
crossing. ' 



DECISIONS AND COMPLAINTS. 263 

The statute under which this petition is filed is as follows: 

"Section 1. That in addition to the powers already conferred upon and pos- 
sessed by the North Carolina corporation commission it shall have power: 

* -» * * -» -If- -» * * 

"(c) To require the raising or lowering of any track or highway at any high- 
way crossing and to designate who shall pay for the same, and, when they think 
proper, partition the cost of abolishing grade crossings and the raising or lower- 
ing of said track or highway among the railroads and municipalities interested," 

The manifest purpose of this statute is to authorize the corporation commis- 
sion to require the abolishing of grade crossings where it can be done by raising 
or lowering railroad tracks. As stated above, all of the evidence is to the effect 
that this is im^practicable at the present crossing, and that there is only a way 
to have an overhead crosing at a point (indicated on the blue print filed by 
defendant) some distance east of the present crossing. 

On the hearing defendant renewed its offer to grade the street approaches and 
to construct the bridge upon plaintiff's abolishing so much of the present street 
as crossing defendant's right of way and condemning the necessary land for the 
purpose of street to the point indicated on the blue print for a bridge. 

By chapter 90, section 15, Private Laws of 1907, it is enacted: "That the board 
of commissioners of the town shall have power at any time, whenever by them 
deemed necessary, to lay out and open new streets and sidewalks, or to widen, 
enlarge, change, extend or discontinue any street or streets, sidewalk or side- 
walks, or any part thereof within the corporate limits of the said town, and 
shall have full power and authority to condemn, appropriate or use any land or 
lands necessary for the purposes named in this section, upon making reasonable 
compensation to the owner thereof." 

Under and by virtue of this statute, we are of opinion that plaintiff can dis- 
continue so much of this street as is on defendant's right of way at this grade 
crossing, and we respectfully recommend that plaintiff accept the offer made by 
defendant. 

We refrain from making an order because, in our opinion, we have not the 
power under the statute. Franklin McNeill, 

November 8, 1909. . Chairman.

"Effective on and after April 1, 1909, the following rule will be added to Circu- 
lar No. 36, being storage and demurrage rules: 

"Where a consignee shall give to the delivering carrier notice of his refusal to 
accept a shipment of freight properly tendered in pursuance of the bill of lading, 
the delivering carrier shall give to the consignor legal notice of such refusal, and 
if the consignor fails within three days thereafter to give direction for the dispo- 
sition of such goods, he shall thenceforth become liable to such carrier for the 
usual storage charges, to the same extent, and at the same rate, as such charges 
are now, under like circumstances, by the rules of this commission, imposed upon 
consignees, who neglect or refuse, after notice of arrival, to remove freight of like 
character. 

"And where a consignee of freight, either in carloads or less than carloads, shall 
fail or neglect to remove such freight within six days after the expiration of 
free time, then the carrier shall, through the agent at point of shipment, so 
notify the shipper, unless the consignee has signified his acceptance of the prop- 
erty. Said notice may either be served personally or given by mail. 

"No such notice to the consignor, however, shall be required of a carrier com- 
pany where goods are shipped in less than carload lots, unless such goods, or the 
packages containing the same, or waybill, shall legibly bear the name and address 
of the consignor thereof. 

"A consignee who has once refused to accept a consignment of goods shall not 
thereafter be entitled to receive the same, except upon the payment of all charges 
for storage which would otherwise have accrued.
